SBCERA to invest $25m European real estate debt fund
The San Bernardino County (Calif.) Employees’ Retirement Association is seeking to commit $25 million to Pramerica Real Estate Capital VI. Pramerica Real Estate Capital VI is sponsored by Pramerica Real Estate Capital, a division of PGIM Real Estate.
