Fortius Funds Management Pty. Ltd., through its unlisted Fortius Brisbane Barracks Trust vehicle, plans to acquire The Barracks mixed-use development in Brisbane, Australia, from financial services provider Challenger for upwards of A$160 million, The Australian reported.
The fund manager is reaching out to wholesale investors to receive funding injections into its trust for the 61 Petrie Terrace asset, which is under due diligence by Fortius, the Oct. 14 report added.
