CBRE Global Investors fund exceeds fundraising target
CBRE Global Investors has held a final close for its CBRE European Shopping Centre Fund II, raising €753 million ($799 million) in equity commitments. The fund was oversubscribed.
The fundraising includes €71.1 million ($54.4 million) of co-investment capital and exceeds the original equity fundraising target.

The fund already has acquired four shopping centers in Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain. Earlier this month, CBRE Global Investors purchased Mongolfiera, a shopping center in Lecce, Italy, for €61.8 million ($65.5 million) from London-based asset manager Schroders.
