Fifth Wall Closes Largest Proptech Fund to Date at $866M
Venture capital firm Fifth Wall has reached the final close of its Real Estate Technology Fund III, totaling $866 million. It’s reportedly the largest proptech fund in history, surpassing Fifth Wall’s Fund I and Fund II, each of which held that distinction at closing. It’s also Fifth Wall’s first hybrid fund, comprised of both early-stage and late-stage vehicles.
“It’s the natural next step that we’d expand the aperture, deploying two vehicles that enable us to invest from seed to IPO,” said Fifth Wall co-founder Brendan Wallace. “It signifies our commitment to the ecosystem as it navigates the next wave.”
Fund III received commitments from existing and new investors globally, including Annaly Capital Management, Arbor Realty Trust, bpifrance through the Digital Funds of Funds, CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield, Equity Residential, Granite Properties, Hines, Invitation Homes, JBG SMITH Properties, Meritage Homes, The Moinian Group, Physicians Realty Trust and PulteGroup, among others.
