The Real Estate Investment Funds team advised Urban Partners’ Northern European real estate business NREP on closing of NREP Nordic Strategies Fund V SCSp which has raised in excess of €3.6 billion, making it the largest European focused value-add real estate fund to date, thanks to NREP’s proven strategies, pipeline, geographical focus and ESG leadership.
The new Fund is the fifth and largest vintage in the NREP Nordic Strategies Fund (“NSF”) value-add series and the vast majority of the commitments to the Fund came from existing Urban Partners’ investors, with the total investor make-up being globally diversified, predominantly comprising pension funds, insurance companies, and sovereign wealth funds. The Fund was significantly oversubscribed and had an aggregate demand from investors exceeding €4.2 billion. Through NSF V, NREP invests to address underserved real estate segments across the Nordics and selected Northern European markets. The focus is on residential rental properties, modern logistics facilities, care homes and offices, where the company can create value through customer-centric and decarbonising solutions.
Goodwin previously advised NREP on the prior funds in the NSF series, NSF II, NSF III which raised €900 million, and NSF IV which raised €1.9 billion.
