Mandrake Capital Closes Fund Aimed at CRE Investments with ”Situational Dynamics” 

New York-based Park Madison Partners announced the final close of Mandrake Capital Real Estate Fund, LP, with $268 million of total commitments. This is Mandrake’s first discretionary commingled fund, and limited partners include a diverse group of institutions, family offices, and high net worth individuals. Park Madison served as the exclusive placement agent. 

The fund, which has already committed $168 million, intends to pursue real estate investment opportunities with situational dynamics and capital market inefficiencies, which Mandrake believes provide opportunities to acquire assets at discounts to their fair or efficient value.  

“We look for deals that don’t fit neatly within a standard ‘bucket,’ perhaps due to the property type, business plan or misunderstood risk factors,” said Joseph O’Connor, managing partner of Mandrake. “We’re willing to do the work to find the hidden value in these deals, and historically that approach has paid off.”
