Zurich, September 23, 2021 - The Fund management company Helvetica Property Investors AG has concluded several long-term leases for the Rüti Center in Pratteln and is planning a capital increase for the Helvetica Swiss Opportunity Fund.

The HSO Fund concluded various leases with anchor tenants for retail space of over 6,500 m2 in Pratteln.
