Pramerica Real Estate Capital, a division of PGIM Real Estate, has raised £300 million ($425.91 million) for Pramerica Real Estate Capital VI.

PRECap Fund VI will pursue a similar strategy to its predecessor funds, investing in junior debt and preferred equity capital. Investments will be secured primarily by office, industrial, retail and residential assets in Western European markets, specifically the United Kingdom and Germany. The fund also may invest selectively in hotels and healthcare. Investments will be made to finance acquisitions, refinance existing debt or to target single-loan acquisitions.
