Cube Capital, a $1.3 billion global alternatives investment firm, has launched a new fund that will invest opportunistically in real estate in Myanmar, Mongolia and Vietnam.
According to the firm, the new vehicle, the Cube Asia Frontier Fund (CAFF), will “focus on these inefficient frontier markets where select opportunities for development and distressed investing are abundant and the economic environment provides a strong catalyst for growth.”
CAFF was launched in anticipation of strong growth potential in the three markets, due to political changes, liberalization, favorable regional demographics and lack of developed credit markets. The fund aims to provide investors with a diversified multi-country exposure while avoiding problems associated with single country frontier funds.
Commenting on the fund launch, Thomas Holland, Chief Investment Officer of CAFF, said: “Our philosophy is to seek uncrowned investment opportunities, and we are confident that exploiting these still insufficiently explored markets will generate attractive returns. It will also make us one of the first entrants into nascent real estate investment markets such as Myanmar. We are looking forward to soon closing one of our first deals.”
Cube Capital employs 49 people and manages approximately $1.3 billion. The company has offices in London, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Moscow and Kiev. Its offerings include multi-manager hedge funds, single-strategy hedge funds and real estate funds.
