Schroders Capital has announced the launch of the Global Real Estate Total Return (GRETR) fund, the latest in its suite of semi-liquid funds aiming to 'democratise' private assets.
The fund will provide access to Schroders Capital’s risk-adjusted real estate strategies including direct investments, alongside minority allocations to public real estate equity and higher yielding real estate debt.
The vehicle will be managed by Kieran Farrelly, head of real estate solutions, and portfolio manager, Yim-Mei Liew.
Schroders Capital‘s semi-liquid series, also offering three existing private equity strategies, was launched in late 2019 and has grown to over $1 bn of AUM.
Kieran Farrelly, Schroders Capital’s head of Real Estate Solutions, said: 'The GRETR fund will enable a wide range of investors to gain exposure to a selected portfolio of compelling global real estate opportunities through an efficient "one-stop" solution. Investors will be able to access the breadth of Schroders Capital’s institutional real estate platform and investment opportunities sourced by Schroders Capital’s enterpreneurial investment teams on the ground in major markets.'
Sophie van Oosterom, Schroders Capital’s global head of real estate, said: 'Current market conditions have reinforced our focus on operational excellence, as we seek to drive long term sustainable income and value from investments for our clients.'
