A cross-office team of Morrison & Foerster attorneys acted as international counsel to long-time client GLP Pte. Ltd., a leading global investment manager and business builder in logistics, real estate, infrastructure, finance and related technologies, in the formation of GLP China Value-Add Venture III (“GLP CVA III”) with a group of leading international and domestic institutional investors through a parallel fund structure.
As detailed in GLP’s press release, GLP CVA III has a total investment capacity of RMB 4.5 billion (approximately US$675 million) and will invest in modern logistics assets in GLP Park Lingang in Shanghai, the biggest and most advanced port-based logistics park in China. GLP CVA III is the third China-focused value-add fund in GLP’s logistics real estate series which seeks to generate long-term, stable returns, by investing in high-quality and well-designed properties in prominent locations.
