Davie Police issues call for 2 real estate funds

Davie (Fla.) Police Pension Plan plans to commit up to $16 million to open-end real estate funds, launching searches for real estate debt and value-added strategies, said Kevin Condy, research analyst at Dahab Associates, the $165 million pension fund's investment consultant.

The pension fund, which has investments in core and core-plus real estate funds, issued the two RFPs to further diversify its real estate portfolio, Mr. Condy said. The amount of each commitment will be between $4 million and $8 million.

As of Sept. 30, the pension fund's real estate allocation was 11.5%; the target is 10%.

The debt RFP and value-added RFP are both available on Dahab Associates' website. Proposals for both are due at 5 p.m. EST on Feb. 25. Timetables for decisions have yet to be determined.

Dahab Associates is assisting with the search.
