Newcore Capital Announces £190 Million Final Close For 5th UK Social Infrastructure Real Estate Fund
Newcore Capital achieves the investment manager's largest ever capital raise amid a challenging macro-economic environment.
LONDON, UK (May 2023) – Newcore Capital (‘Newcore’) has secured £190 million in equity commitments for Newcore Strategic Situations V (NSS V), which will invest in physical social infrastructure across the UK with a principal focus on Greater London and the South-East of England.
Combined with appropriate leverage, the capital raise gives Newcore close to £350 million of firepower to deploy into the current dislocated market.
Notable investors include the Merseyside and Clwyd Local Government Pension Schemes, two European fund-of-fund managers and a FTSE-100 corporate pension fund. A number of high-net-worth individuals and family offices also participated in the final close.
The fund had a 60 percent re-up rate, with those re-upping increasing their average commitment by 74 percent. Accord Europe Limited and its affiliates were the appointed capital advisor.
Newcore Capital CEO Hugo Llewelyn commented: “To have achieved our largest final close to date against a deeply uncertain economic backdrop is a testament to the track record of our team and the quality of our proposition, which is why so many of our investors have invested with us throughout our value-add fund series.
