Safe as houses: New 'gender lens' fund focuses on helping homeless women

In this week’s newsletter, Emily Perryman focuses on a new fund launch from Patron Capital, the Women In Safe Homes (WISH) Fund, which has a GBP100 million target, and is the world’s first ‘gender lens’ property fund aimed at helping at risk of or experiencing homelessness. And as Patron Capital MD Keith Breslauer highlights, the fund already has a GBP10 million commitment from impact investors Society Capital.

In other fund launches this week, we have news of new Living Cities Residential Fund from PATRIZIA which has EUR600 million in seed assets and is expected to top over EUR1 billion in assets next year. Plus, there’s a new European Long Income Fund from Alpha Real Capital which will invest in commercial ground rents, amortising income strips and long lease property.

In deals, we have news of Investcorp’s USD800 million acquisition of two industrial and logistics real estate portfolios, plus the purchase of two fully-let Dutch residential schemes by CIMB.
