Financial and tax consulting services were provided by TPA Slovakia, technical and environmental consulting by Grinity, and legal consulting by MCL Law Firm. "We highly appreciate the cooperation with proven providers of legal, financial, tax and, last but not least, technical-environmental consulting services. Thanks to these partners, the transaction went smoothly and without unnecessary delays," says Tomáš Trebula, Transaction Manager of IAD Investments.

The First Real Estate Fund has been offering its investors stable returns without significant fluctuations since 2006. It is the oldest Slovak mutual fund focused on investments in real estate and manages assets that can retain value and achieve income even in the current difficult period.

"This property with a high-quality long-term tenant fits perfectly into the portfolio of the First Real Estate Fund," adds Trebula.
