RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, May 31, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vinci Partners Investments Ltd. (NASDAQ: VINP) ("Vinci Partners, "the Company," "we," "us," or "our"), the controlling company of a leading alternative investment platform in Brazil, announced today the closing of the initial public offering (“IPO”) of “Vinci Imóveis Urbanos FII”, or “VIUR”. This is a new listed REIT managed by the Vinci Partners’ Real Estate segment, for which the Company raised R$269.5 million.
VIUR is a new perpetual capital listed REIT, focused on income generation to its quotaholders through the acquisition of urban commercial properties in Brazil, such as street retail, grocery, healthcare, and educational focused real estate properties.
VIUR’s initial public offering was raised through retail investors in the Brazilian stock market (“B3”) and is the fifth listed REIT managed by Vinci Partners’ Real Estate team, in addition to VISC, VILG, VINO and VIFI, which together have more than 325,000 retail investors.
Leandro Bousquet, partner and Head of Real Estate for Vinci Partners, said, “VIUR’s IPO is an important milestone for us, as we consolidate ourselves as the top-of-mind brand for listed REITs in all the key real estate investment sectors in Brazil. We believe there is an enormous opportunity to deploy capital in this sector that has a large addressable market with very fragmented ownership, as we seek to generate yield to our quotaholders through a high-quality diversified portfolio of urban commercial properties.”
