With Fund X, Rockwood will endeavor to execute its time-tested strategy of balancing risk across the value-added spectrum with a focus on “speed-to-income.” In particular, Fund X will target growing and evolving neighborhoods, especially those driven by some combination of education, wealth and favorable population-based socioeconomic trends.
As of the final closing, Fund X is approximately 30 percent committed, having completed nine investments. “Fund X has consummated nine investments to date that we believe will deliver compelling, risk-adjusted returns as we execute our value-enhancing business plans. We will continue to employ a measured investment pace, applying discipline and patience to identify and take advantage of opportunities that are consistent with our investment strategy,” said Tyson Skillings, a Managing Partner and the Portfolio Manager of Fund X. “We will focus on speed-to-income, or how quickly value creation can be executed and a durable income stream put in place.”
Fund X has a diverse, multi-national investor base consisting of public and private pension funds, foundations, endowments, insurance companies, funds of funds, family offices and high net worth individuals. Over 60 percent of Fund X investors have invested in previous Rockwood-sponsored funds. “We are extremely gratified by the trust and support of our existing investors and their continued confidence in our ability to execute the investment strategy that we have honed over decades,” said Peter Falco, Senior Managing Partner. “We are also delighted to begin relationships with our new investors and look forward to working with them to enhance their existing investment portfolios.”
