Clear Opportunities Fund Closes $60 Million, Magnetar Capital as Partner

Clear Investment Group, a multifamily real estate investment firm, announced the close of its third round in Clear Opportunities Fund I (“the Fund”) with approximately $10 million in added new member commitments, including a strategic partnership with Magnetar Capital, a leading alternative asset manager.

Launched in December 2022, the Fund seeks to maximize investor value through the stabilization of distressed workforce housing. To date, the Fund has raised approximately $60 million in equity commitments. Institutions and investors in due diligence are projected to bring the final closing AUM to over $80 million in the strategy.

“We are pleased to welcome our new investors who share our view of the tremendous opportunity presented by this area of the real estate market,” said Clear Investment Group Managing Director & CFO, Razi M. Uddin. “We are excited to have a well-respected strategic partner in Magnetar.”

Real estate remains an important part of any diversified portfolio, especially now. Equity markets are plagued by headline risks, such as rising inflation, rising cost of debt, long-term COVID effects and geo-political issues. Meanwhile these factors benefit the multifamily sector. Stalled construction in the past decade has limited housing supply; and rising mortgage rates have pushed more of the middle-class into renting. Class-C rentals are in especially high demand. During the pandemic, when unemployment rose to 14.8%, Class-C vacancy never exceeded 4%.

“The current market continues to present opportunities with strong fundamentals; depressed pricing makes this a prime time to deploy capital,” CEO Amy M. Rubenstein said. “Leveraging our time-tested approach to asset management, our investment model demonstrates resilience during downturns, enabling us to acquire deeply discounted assets without relying solely on economic appreciation.”

Clear Investment Group is laser-focused on building wealth and unlocking value for investors through their proven track record. The firm is recognized for their diligent concentration on ESG initiatives. As a woman-owned business with a highly diverse team, Clear Investment Group seeks to recognize and promote the same diversity across all of their portfolios and throughout the industry.
