Peakside Capital is partnering with blockchain platform Brickblock Ltd. to establish what would be the real estate investment manager's first tokenized real estate fund, PERE News reported.
The unnamed fund, expected to be launched in the first or second quarter of 2019, aims to raise "tens of millions of euros," according to the report. It would enable investors to buy and sell their equity stakes in the vehicle in minutes without any negotiation process. Investors in the fund would use the cryptocurrency Ethereum through Brickblock's blockchain technology to commit capital online, PERE noted.
The fund will potentially invest in core and core-plus office and mixed-use properties in Germany. The investor base is likely to include family offices and individuals, in addition to insurers, pension funds and other institutional backers, according to the news outlet.
