HighBrook Investors, a deep value-oriented real estate firm investing in Europe and the US, today announced the closing of its most recent fund, HighBrook Property Fund IV. The oversubscribed Fund closed significantly above its target at $632m.

Fund IV continues the investment strategy of its predecessor fund, focusing on deep value and special situations, targeting industrial, residential, and creative office assets. The Fund focuses on select markets in Western Europe, including the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark and may also selectively acquire properties in the US that are consistent with HighBrook’s overall sector themes. On behalf of Fund IV, HighBrook has thus far acquired 80 properties comprised predominantly of urban in-fill, last-mile warehouses.

“We are grateful to both our existing and new limited partners for their strong support and commitment to HighBrook, particularly in a challenging economic environment,” said Brian Carr, Managing Partner, HighBrook Investors. “Their support allows us to continue our nimble yet highly focused investment approach with an emphasis on preservation of capital while capitalizing on high-quality value opportunities.”

“Limited partners clearly found HighBrook’s cycle-tested team, demonstrated investment acumen and exit discipline, and breadth of experience to be highly differentiated and compelling,” said Lori Campana, Partner at Monument Group. “We saw interest for Fund IV across geographies and investor segments and were pleased to have support from Fund III’s limited partners.
