The new fund, named Rockwood Capital Real Estate Partners Fund X, L.P., is a value-added vehicle and will target office, residential, retail and hotel assets in urban and “suburban core” mixed-use environments in the United States, according to a statement. 

Fund X will endeavor to execute Rockwood time-tested strategy of balancing risk across the value-added spectrum with a focus on “speed-to-income,” the company said. In particular, Fund X will target growing and evolving neighborhoods, especially those driven by some combination of education, wealth and favorable population-based socioeconomic trends.

As of the final closing, Fund X is approximately 30 percent committed through nine investments. “Fund X has consummated nine investments to date that we believe will deliver compelling, risk-adjusted returns as we execute our value-enhancing business plans,” said Tyson Skillings, a managing partner and portfolio manager of Fund X. “We will focus on speed-to-income, or how quickly value creation can be executed and a durable income stream put in place.”

Fund X’s investor global investor base consists of public and private pension funds, foundations, endowments, insurance companies, funds of funds, family offices and high net worth individuals, Rockwood explained. More than 60% of them are returning investors from previous Rockwood-sponsored funds. 

Park Madison Partners served as Fund X’s exclusive placement agent in North America. while Threadmark LLP served as Fund X’s exclusive placement agent in Europe.
