While continuation vehicles were once viewed as a signal of delay or failure, market sentiment is rapidly changing.
The rules are changing, faster and more frequently than before. Flexibility is more important than ever, as is the ability to adapt strategic plans. An investor’s strategic plan from five years ago may not be optimized for today’s reality.
Over the past few years and with increasing frequency, real estate investment managers and their investors have been exploring ways to recapitalize opportunistic or value-add investments with longer-term (and often lower cost) capital.
While continuation vehicles were once viewed in a negative light, due to the potential conflicts between GP and LP interests, or to the tendency for such vehicles to be utilized only when there had been a failure or delay in accomplishing a fund’s objectives, market sentiment is rapidly changing.
