Early in 2019, Arrow Capital Partners launched the Strategic Industrial Real Estate (SIRE) joint venture to purchase core-plus logistics assets with long-term leases. During the first half of 2019, the JV has invested €200 million across five European countries.
Arrow‘s latest acquisition in Spain is three-asset portfolio located in Zaragoza with a GLA of 38,536m2 which has been purchased on a sale & leaseback basis. The investment volume exceeds €20 million according to Savills who has participated as an advisor in this acquisition along with law firm Latham & Watkins.
The buyers have indicated that the portfolio traded at a yield of 7% and is leased to Grupo Sese for a term of 10 years. Grupo Sese is one of the premier 3PL operators in Spain established in 1965 servicing e-commerce, distribution and supply chain solutions.
In Spain, Arrow Capital Partners has been appointed by Cerberus Capital Management to help manage a €750M Spanish light industrial and logistics portfolio. The portfolio is managed by Arrow Capital’s Spanish team which is led by Howard Barnes, formerly head of development at Talus Real Estate.
