Real estate private equity firm Gaw Capital Partners has closed two investment vehicles that have attracted up to US$900 million in commitments.

The first vehicle will focus primarily on real estate opportunities across sectors and markets in Asia. The second will invest in education platforms in major Asian cities with strong structural tailwinds supporting growth in demand for premium international or bilingual education. The fund will look to partner and work with top-tier school operators through greenfield or brownfield development, and through acquisition of properties.

Stellart International School of Arts (SISA) is the first education platform project for the education mandate. Located in Guangzhou South, and developed by Gaw Capital Partners, SISA, specializes in creative art and design.

“We are delighted to close these new investment vehicles following Gateway Real Estate Fund VI’s highly successful fundraising round,” says Christina Gaw, managing principal and head of capital markets. “Investor demand for education and other value-add and opportunistic opportunities in Asia reinforces our belief that such investments will play an increasingly important role in real estate portfolios moving forward.”
