NEW YORK, NY – June 4, 2012 – R4 Capital, a national affordable housing tax-credit syndicator, announced today that it closed on the initial $80 million of a $100 million multi-investor Low-Income Housing Tax Credit fund.
The $100 million R4 Housing Partners LP Fund comprises 15 properties in 10 states and Washington DC and will provide 1,459 affordable housing units.
“In a highly competitive market our investors expressed their confidence in the R4 Capital team,” said Marc Schnitzer, President of R4 Capital. “By proving the ability to raise investor capital in our first year of business, we have shown that R4 Capital is a reliable and competitive source of tax-credit equity for developers,” added Mr. Schnitzer.
The Fund portfolio is made up of properties across the US; 73% of the portfolio represents projects where an R4 Capital senior executive had completed prior transactions with a developer or consultant involved in the new R4 Housing Partners Fund. Meridian Investments Inc. acted as placement agent for the Fund, and Nixon Peabody LLP served as legal counsel in forming the Fund.
