NB Partners Fund III closes at USD500m hard cap

Boston-based NorthBridge Partners (NorthBridge) and New York-based Park Madison Partners have announced the final close of NB Partners Fund III, LP (Fund III), which was oversusbcribed at its USD500 million hard cap. 

Investors in the fund included a mix of public and private pensions, foundations, asset managers, family offices, and high net worth individuals.

NorthBridge launched its logistics strategy in 2014 with the goal of acquiring, modernising, and developing small-to-mid sized final-mile logistics assets on the US East Coast. Fund III’s strategy is a continuation of the prior two vehicles, targeting strategically located US East Coast industrial assets that are critical to the modern e-commerce supply chain as companies compete for the shortest delivery times to consumers.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with NorthBridge on this capital raise,” says Park Madison Partners’ Rob Kohn. “We launched this fund in March 2020 right when the pandemic struck, and as a result, the fundraising effort shifted to an almost entirely virtual format. The success despite this challenge is a testament to NorthBridge’s talent as an investment manager in the final-mile industrial sector and to investors’ confidence in them as fiduciaries.”

The success of Fund III follows NorthBridge’s March 2021 announcement regarding the recapitalisation of a USD360 million, 2.3 million square foot portfolio of final-mile industrial properties in partnership with Brookfield Asset Management’s new secondaries platform. Park Madison Partners served as NorthBridge’s exclusive capital advisor on the recapitalisation.
