Ardian, a private investment house, has raised more than €700 million ($854 million) for its first Real Estate European Fund.
Investors in the fund included pension funds, insurance companies, financial institutions, and high-net-worth individuals across the world, totaling nearly 50 investors from 11 different countries.
“This fund is a milestone moment for Ardian Real Estate,” said Bertrand Julien-Laferrière, head of Ardian Real Estate. “The positive reception and strong support for this fund among both existing and new investors shows the appetite for this asset class. It is also recognition of Ardian’s strong track record and of the quality of its real estate teams in Paris, Frankfurt and Milan. We have already been able to deploy capital across nine assets that perfectly fit our strategy, highlighting the attractive investment opportunities that exist on the market, and we’ll announce significant new transactions in the coming months.”
