Real Estate Hedge Fund Considers Winding Down

The Irish Stock Exchange-listed offering, managed by the Rock Capital Group, is in talks with investors about the fund’s future.

“We are talking to investors and will discuss it at the quarterly board meeting,” fund manager Mark Laurence told Property Week. “There is the possibility of investors rolling over into a long-only vehicle, which we think is a more appropriate way to invest in property shares in the current market.”
