Blackstone, Principal Asset win Korea Post’s $150 mn mandates

Jul 04, 2019 (Gmt+09:00)

Korea Post has awarded two real estate debt investment mandates worth $150 million to the Blackstone Group and Principal Asset Management, its savings unit said on July 4.


The state-run agency’s investment committee has recently decided to entrust $100 million to Blackstone’s blind-pool real estate debt fund and $50 million to Principal Asset’s to invest in mezzanine notes.


They were mandated to have US real estate debts account for at least half of their portfolios, with a maximum leverage of 50%.


Their average loan-to-value ratio should not exceed 80%, with a term of up to 10 years.


In April, Korea Post issued a request of proposal for the mandates for a target IRR of 7% per year.


In 2018, it invested 100 million euros ($113 million) in Europe’s value-add real estate investment funds, after committing $450 million to senior debt funds for commercial real estates in 2016.
