Credit Suisse plans $2.5 billion global property fund
Credit Suisse is launching a $2.5 billion fund for investment in property. It joins an already extensive list of private equity funds raising cash for the sector. These include Morgan Stanley’s $8 billion fund and private equity fund Blackstone Group’s $10 billion fund. The bank started to market the fund at the end of April and intends to use it for investment globally as it attempts to tap growing investor appetite for geographical diversification in property investment.
