The fund started the restructuring in 2016 after it amended its revolving credit facility (RCF) into a €200 million RCF with a five-year term.

In addition, the fund recently secured €140 million of investment from new and existing investors.

Rik Eertink, fund manager of the CBRE Dutch Retail Fund said: “The interest in the Dutch retail market and in particular the CBRE Dutch Retail Fund continues to grow with both national and international investors.”

“We will continue to strengthen our position as leading core retail fund in the Netherlands, serving those investors who are seeking exposure to retail via a high quality portfolio of dominant shopping centres, high street assets at prime locations and winning convenience clusters in the Netherlands.”
