Real Estate Hedge Fund To Roll Out Offshore Vehicle

Mar 22 2012 | 12:27pm ET

Dallas real-estate hedge fund KeyPoint Capital Management is readying an offshore version of its flagship for launch this summer.

The tentatively-named KeyPoint Offshore Real Estate Opportunity Hedge Fund will debut with $10 million from funds of hedge funds in June, HFMWeek reports. The new fund will be run alongside the existing onshore vehicle; all told, the strategy has a capacity of $1 billion.

KeyPoint plans to hire an analyst in May. Firm founder Rod Hinze is also planning to visit Europe to push his wares to allocators outside of the U.S. But it isn't investor demand that's driving the new offshore fund's launch—it's opportunity.

"It is an inefficient market," Hinze told HFM. "It is a retail-driven yield-seeking investor. It is under-covered on the Street and there are predominantly long-only REIT funds in this space."

The $37 million firm invests primarily in U.S. real estate, especially retail, industrial and commercial space. It also invests in healthcare properties, prisons, movie theaters, data centers and cellular phone towers.
