NEW YORK--()--Goldman Sachs announced today that it has completed its final close for its latest real estate credit investment vehicle, Broad Street Real Estate Credit Partners III (“Real Estate Credit Partners III” or the “Fund”). The Fund has $6.7 billion in total capital available to invest, including leverage.

“We are really pleased with the overwhelming support of our investors. It is a testament to their confidence in our strategy, talented team and successful track record in sourcing and executing attractive real estate credit investments”

Real Estate Credit Partners III is managed by the Real Estate Group in Goldman Sachs’ Merchant Banking Division (“MBD”). MBD’s Real Estate Group has raised over $15 billion of commitments for investing in real estate credit since 2008.

“We are really pleased with the overwhelming support of our investors. It is a testament to their confidence in our strategy, talented team and successful track record in sourcing and executing attractive real estate credit investments,” said Alan Kava, the New York-based co-head of MBD’s Real Estate Group.

“We successfully added European-based investments during the prior Fund and we will continue to leverage our scale and our deep understanding of the various local real estate markets to provide customized solutions to borrowers across Europe and North America,” said Jim Garman, the London-based co-head of MBD’s Real Estate Group.

Peter Weidman, MBD’s Global Head of Real Estate Credit, added, “Real Estate Credit Partners III will pursue the same investment strategy that has proven so successful in our prior funds – focusing on direct originations of both senior and mezzanine loans secured by high quality assets in major markets. The Fund’s scale and flexibility allows us to be an originate-and-hold lender, providing highly customized loans from $100mm to in excess of $500mm throughout the US and Europe.”
