EQT Exeter is a real estate investment management firm specializing in the acquisition, development, leasing and management of industrial, office and related business park properties through an array of value-add and core return private equity investment vehicles.

San Antonio Fire and Police allocates 7.1 percent of its investment portfolio to private real estate, comprising around $312 million in capital. It has a target allocation to real estate of 7 percent.

As illustrated below, the pension’s recent real estate commitments have tended to focus on North American industrial vehicles that target value-add or debt-focused returns.
