Hedge fund Fir Tree Partners has raised more than $600 million for its second real-estate private equity fund, more than $100 million in excess of its original target.
The $7 billion New York-based firm announced that its Real Estate Opportunity Fund II garnered $628 million before it closed. Fir Tree had initially sought $500 million for the fund, which was launched a year-and-a-half ago, two years after the firm launched its first real estate fund.
Fir Tree has already invested some 90% of the second fund in commercial and residential real-estate, including equity, senior loans and mezzanine investments.
