At year-end 2016, 66.5% of the investment portfolio is located in the primary part of the portfolio compared to 67.0% at year-end 2015. This slight drop is due to the fact Vesteda no longer considers a number of regions as primary region.

In line with our strategy of focusing on the mid-rental segment of the market, the percentage of our investment portfolio in this segment had increased to 69.3% at the end of 2016, from 64.8% at the end of 2015.
