Alex Brown plans $300m fundraise for sixth value-add real estate fund
Alex Brown Realty (ABR) is planning to raise $300m (€266m) for its latest value-add real estate fund.
According to sources, the company’s ABR Chesapeake Investors VI fund has a $400m hard cap.
ABR, which declined a request for comment, is known for buying a mid-sized of US real estate assets, often in the range of $20m to $40m.
US pension Santa Barbara County Employees Retirement System (SBCERS) stated in a board meeting document that it had approved a $10m investment in the fund.
The $3bn pension fund said it is planning to issue $50m of real estate fund commitments this year, most of which will be for non-core strategies.
SBCERS is considering redeeming capital from core open-ended funds, the details of which are yet to be disclosed.
