H.I.G. Capital Closes H.I.G. Realty Partners IV Fund

MIAMI – March 1, 2022 – H.I.G. Capital (“H.I.G.”), a leading global alternative asset management firm with over $47 billion of equity capital under management, is pleased to announce the closing of its fourth U.S. Realty Partners fund, H.I.G. Realty Partners IV (the “Fund”). The Fund closed with aggregate capital commitments of $838 million, exceeding its target.* The Fund will continue to pursue the successful investment strategy employed by its predecessor funds and target mid-cap assets with gross asset values (“GAV”) typically less than $200 million, primarily in the major markets of the U.S. The Fund has already made nine investments.

Sami Mnaymneh and Tony Tamer, H.I.G. Co-Founders and Co-CEOs, commented: “We are very proud of the continued success of the H.I.G. Realty team and their differentiated, value-add strategy focused on the mid-cap segment of the U.S. real estate market. The support from our limited partners validates our conviction in the team’s ability to execute on the Fund’s investment strategy.”

David Hirschberg and Ira Weidhorn, Co-Heads of H.I.G. Realty Partners, added: “We are excited to expand upon H.I.G.’s successful value-add real estate strategy with the closing of H.I.G. Realty Partners IV. We continue to source unique investment opportunities across the real estate asset class spectrum, benefiting from H.I.G.’s scale and operational synergies, and creating a meaningful competitive advantage for us.”

Jordan Peer Griffin, Executive Managing Director and Global Head of H.I.G. Capital Formation, added: “The Fund received tremendous support from our global investor base, allowing us to complete a mostly virtual fundraising process. The Fund is comprised of a diverse group of leading real estate investors including foundations, endowments, public and corporate pensions, consultants, sovereign wealth funds, and family offices in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.”
