Le Bijou Real Estate Bonds

Le Bijou Bonds

Receive 3%, 4%, 5% or 6% of fixed monthly income

Le Bijou Bonds* offer fixed monthly returns, backed by a prime Swiss apartment hotel.

This type of investment works best for investors focusing on stability and security.  Switzerland’s hospitality sector, with the ever-increasing tourist arrivals since 1982 and the real estate market unaffected by global turmoil, makes a perfect place to preserve and grow wealth.

What is the
Le Bijou Bond?

Le Bijou Bonds yield 3%, 4%, 5.% or 6% of fixed monthly income

The Le Bijou bond* represents an investment in a prime Swiss hospitality business. Investment returns are fixed at 3 – 6%, depending on the bond issue, duration and investment size.

The bond is secured by the returns of Le Bijou signature apartment hotels, derived from the profit made on short- and long-term rentals and events.

Why Bonds?

Le Bijou is a network of high-end apartment hotels

lazy-img

Low-risk asset

Bondholders usually have a higher seniority than other instruments, meaning bond investors get paid before any other investor; as such, bonds have traditionally been used by investors as a low-risk option to balance a portfolio

Fixed income

Bonds yield a fixed income regardless of current business performance

Guaranteed

Our bonds derive their returns from prime real estate operated as a luxury hotel in the centres of Switzerland’s biggest cities. Demand for such accommodations is always high, resulting in a stable investment

Why investors value Le Bijou

Returns way above the market

Our innovative model offers an easy way to enter the high-end real estate rental market with up to 6.0% return on fixed income, and up to 7 - 14% in the equity model.

Diversified revenue streams

We don’t rely on any single group of customers. Hotel clients are distributed across business verticals, countries of origin and purpose of the booking - from corporate events to private travels, from individual clients to travel agencies.

Stable against global turmoil

Tourist visits to Switzerland remained steady despite the global crises of 2000 and 2008, and have been showing a positive trend since the 1980's (BFS). Swiss real estate investments have very low correlation with global real estate (Credit Suisse), meaning that they are relatively independent from the global dips.

Our investor community

An investment into Le Bijou represents a commitment to an exclusive network of individuals that encompasses innovative thinkers from the co-founder of Apple Computers, to CEO’s of market changing companies. But it’s not all business. From cocktail networking, to a classic Swiss fondue; black tie to sports days; we like to catch up with our investors regularly to share a little of the Le Bijou spirit.

Why people invest

To get better returns than in their pension fund

The performance of Swiss pension funds is neither predictable nor transparent. The actual returns are behind expectations by more than 2 times, and have kept falling since 2008 (OPSC). If you are anything like most Swiss citizens, you have no idea where your vital funds are invested in, and have no impact over it.

To re-balance their portfolio

One of the fundamental investment best practices is balancing the portfolio: diversifying the investment across both high-risk and low-risk assets. Once in a while, an investor should do rebalancing: harvesting the profits made by high-risk investments and converting them to less volatile investments like bonds or real estate.

To manage inheritance

While you might want to invest a portion of the inheritance in education or your own business, the number one rule for managing the inheritance is "do not lose it". So it is recommended to keep the largest part of it in assets that are secure against inflation and global crises.
