Westbrook's latest real estate fund gains further US pension fund backing

Westbrook Partners’ latest opportunistic property fund has attracted $200m (€178m) worth of new commitments from two US public pension funds.

Virginia Retirement System and Mississippi Public Employees Retirement System said they had committed $125m and $75m, respectively, to Westbrook Real Estate Fund XI.

As previously reported, Teachers’ Retirement System of the State of Illinois and the Teacher Retirement System of Texas have each committed $200m to the fund.

Westbrook’s fundraising target is unknown, although it raised $2.85bn for its previous fund in February 2016.

According to sources, the fund will invest globally and is likely to target returns greater than 15%.
