We are very satisfied to see the investment strategy begun in 2018 and the launch of Valotel Holding (Suisse) SA take shape, testifying to our investors' confidence. As a minority investor in the holding, we affirm our desire to take a share of the risk in this project that we firmly believe in. The expertise in the Swiss tourism market that the members of our staff have developed for more than 15 years strengthens our position.

The strategy concerns urban and peri-urban assets, in the economy to midscale category and established in strategic areas with direct access to the major transport hubs (station, airport, motorways, exhibition centers). They target a return on investments by +10%.
