Alpha Investment Partners secures S$360 million separate account mandate from Dutch pension fund manager PGGM
The Alpha Asia Separate Account (the Fund) includes a top-up option of up to S$320 million, which would bring the aggregate commitment to S$680 million if the top-up option were fully exercised. The Fund will focus on core-plus opportunities predominantly in commercial real estate in key cities in Japan and China, as well as in Singapore.
Mr Alvin Mah, CEO of Alpha, said, “We are heartened by the continued trust that PGGM has placed in us, especially in the current challenging environment. We are pleased to extend our long-standing partnership with PGGM, which has invested in various Alpha-managed funds for over 15 years. The new investment mandate bears testimony to the confidence that institutional investors have in Alpha’s capabilities in delivering sound returns for our investors.”
“Following the success of our previous investments with Alpha we are delighted to be able to expand our relationship. This investment reflects our confidence in Asia’s long term growth prospects and Alpha’s ability to identify attractive opportunities in these markets,” said Jikke de Wit and Ping Ip from PGGM Private Real Estate in a joint statement.
Since 2004, Alpha has executed 190 transactions with gross acquisition value of more than US$26 billion for its managed funds across the strategy spectrum from core, core-plus, value-add to opportunistic. Alpha has an institutional investor base comprising renowned pension plans, financial institutions, fund of funds, insurance companies, endowments and family offices spanning Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.
The abovementioned separate account mandate award is not expected to have any material impact on the earnings per share and net tangible asset per share of Keppel Corporation Limited for the current financial year.
