LOS ANGELES, Feb. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- EdgeLine Capital Partners is pleased to congratulate CapRock Partners on their successful final close of its oversubscribed CapRock Value-Add Industrial Partners Fund III at its hard cap of $250 million with additional co-invest commitments of $90 million. Investors included public and corporate pension funds, endowments, foundations, money managers, family offices and high-net-worth investors.
"Value-Add Fund III is consistent with our investment strategy since we started the company by acquiring middle-market, underutilized industrial assets in the Western United States," noted Jon Pharris, CapRock's Co-Founder and President. "Deploying capital within the lower middle-market space is labor-intensive, but there are more opportunities to generate outsized returns. Our strategy is to find diamonds in the rough in strong markets, move quickly, and apply our integrated development and market expertise to reposition properties to meet tenant demand in each unique submarket. We are careful to focus only on markets we know well and where we are well known, which allows us to uncover off-market opportunities."
"EdgeLine is privileged to have worked with CapRock, and we are particularly proud to have achieved such a successful fundraise during this challenging pandemic," noted Dan Epstein, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at EdgeLine. "Since its founding in 2009, CapRock has built a reputation based on a highly disciplined and focused professional team whose expert execution of their strategy has resulted in consistent top-quartile performance. In our view, CapRock is the best-in-class industrial investor and partner of choice in the Western Region. We look forward to working closely with them for years to come."
