Real Estate: Kayne Anderson Raising $2 Billion for Sixth Fund

Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors is seeking to secure its sixth real estate fund by raising $2 billion.  The goal of this fund is to focus on investments in student housing, and has received support from the Teachers’ Retirement System of Louisiana.  This includes a $50 million investment in the fund.  


As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, turbulent markets — particularly in student housing — could be attractive investments for Kayne Anderson.  Investments in this market could rise up to 20 percent for the firm.  This is a ten percent increase in student housing from the previous fund.  

The Kayne Anderson Real Estate Partners VI fund expects to have a 75 percent loan-to-value ratio with 2.5 percent of commitments as co-investments in the fund.
