Greystar closes largest ever multifamily value add fund at $2B

Greystar Real Estate Partners, a global investor, developer and manager of rental housing, announced on behalf of its affiliates, the final close of Greystar Equity Partners X with a commitments of $2 billion from global institutional investors from North America, Continental Europe and Asia-Pacific.

GEP X represents the largest ever fundraise for a U.S. multifamily value-add fund. GEP X is the 10th in Greystar’s flagship series of funds focused on acquiring existing assets in top U.S. markets that exhibit favorable rental housing fundamentals.

“This is an exciting close to a milestone fundraise for our team. We have been laser focused on continuously refining our value-add strategy and cultivating strong relationships with our investment partners, and we are proud of the outcome here,” said Bob Faith, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Greystar.

“We’re grateful for the trust that a growing number of global institutions place in us.”

Since 2011, Greystar has raised more than $4.5 billion for its flagship value-add fund series. GEP X reached its hard cap and was oversubscribed with both new and existing institutional investors, reflecting strong global demand for rental residential investment strategies.

The fund intends to leverage Greystar’s vertically integrated platform to drive value across the GEP X portfolio by creating operating efficiencies and implementing strategic capital improvements.

“As we move later into the real estate cycle, we are seeing that global institutional investors are increasingly flocking to more defensive investment strategies with integrated managers,” said Kevin Kaberna, Executive Director of Greystar’s U.S. Investment Management business.

“We continue to seek to identify compelling cash flowing investments that align with our strategic priorities, and we remain
confident in our team’s ability to prudently deploy
capital.”
