Fir Tree Partners has raised more than $300 million for its third fund Fir Tree Real Estate Fund III, reaching more than half of its fundraising goal of $500 million. The value-added/opportunistic fund was launched on Feb. 1, 2013.
Fir Tree Real Estate Fund III has a broad real estate mandate, investing in assets, loans and companies.
Fir Tree launched its first real estate fund, Fir Tree Mortgage Opportunity Fund, in 2008 and raised approximately $ $400 million in commitments for the vehicle. The fund invested its capital in mortgage-related opportunities, which includes senior, high quality mortgage securities, structured products, and other areas that are related to the fallout in the US mortgage market.
