Cerberus Closes Opportunistic RE Fund with $2.8B of Commitments

Cerberus Capital Management said Monday it had $2.8 billion of commitments for its flagship global opportunistic real estate strategy. Cerberus Institutional Real Estate Partners V, L.P. (CIREP V) closed with more than $2.5 billion in commitments with an additional $300 million committed to a dedicated investor fund.

CIREP V received broad support from existing and new limited partners, surpassing its initial target of $2.0 billion. The strategy will invest in direct assets, real estate companies, entities with significant real estate exposure, and real estate-related debt.

“The investment landscape plays to the strengths of our global real estate franchise,” said Lee Millstein, global head of real estate at New York City-based Cerberus. “There are market dislocations and macrotrends that are driving compelling opportunities across our broad platform. Our team will continue our disciplined approach to investing opportunistically, establishing innovative partnerships, and applying our operating capabilities and experience to solve complex problems.”
