Press Release · Reading time: 2 minutes
GMG Asset Management and RE Capital have launched a real estate feeder fund to manage a large-scale development project in the heart of Lisbon that will serve as an important residential neighbourhood in the Portuguese capital.
GMG has been appointed as the fund’s investment manager, adding to its growing real estate portfolio. GMG will use the group’s experience in real estate and expertise across asset classes covering several jurisdictions, including Switzerland, UK, Portugal and Germany.
The fund, domiciled in Luxembourg, serves as a precedent for future opportunities that can replicate the fund’s efficient structure, offering a robust and fully regulated framework and greater warranty for institutional investors.
“We’re pleased to have been selected for this important project following our FINMA licence extension in May earlier this year,” said GMG’s CEO, Mathieu Saint-Cyr. “GMG’s joint venture with our partner RE Capital is a new chapter in our ambitious plan for several future real estate projects that serve a genuine utility for the areas in which they’re built.”
“We are thrilled to be working with GMG on this fund as it has been a clear goal to gravitate towards regulated structures for our international base of investors,” said Newman Leech, co-Founder and CEO of RE Capital. “It is our first such foray into the regulated fund space and we hope to do many more with GMG. This is an exciting new residential project and will arguably be one of the most contemporary developments in charismatic and vibrant Lisbon. Once complete, it will provide an attractive opportunity for investors to own quality apartments in one of the world’s top ten cities.”
The project is managed in Portugal by Reward Properties, a residential real estate developer, set up as a joint venture between RE Capital and Neworld, a European-domiciled property development company.
