TORONTO, Feb. 28 /CNW/ - Timbercreek Global Real Estate Fund (the "Fund") announces that it has filed a final prospectus dated February 28, 2011 with the Canadian securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada, and a receipt therefore has been issued.  The prospectus qualifies the distribution (the "Offering") of class A units and class B units of the Fund (collectively, the "Units") that will be issued at $12.22 per Unit and $12.21 per Unit, respectively. The Offering is scheduled to close on March 11, 2011. The syndicate of agents is co-led by Raymond James Ltd. and BMO Capital Markets, and includes CIBC, GMP Securities L.P., TD Securities Inc., HSBC Securities (Canada) Inc., Manulife Securities Incorporated, Scotia Capital Inc., National Bank Financial Inc., Canaccord Genuity Corp., Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd. and M Partners Inc.

The Fund, which is managed by Timbercreek Asset Management Ltd. (the "Manager"), was established to invest in a globally diversified portfolio of premier real estate securities including common equity, preferred shares and debt of both public and private real estate investment trusts and real estate companies in Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Japan, Australia, Hong Kong and other countries.  The Manager has engaged FSX Securities Canada Inc. (the "Advisor") to provide portfolio management services to the Fund.  Through the Manager's partnership with the Advisor, the Fund will be supported by a team of real estate analysts based in Toronto, New York, London and Hong Kong that are strictly dedicated to analyzing and investing in real estate securities. 

The Fund's investment objectives are to provide holders of Units ("Unitholders") with quarterly distributions currently targeted to be $0.21 per Unit ($0.84 per annum) until March 2012; and preserve capital while providing the opportunity for long-term capital appreciation for Unitholders. 

The Manager, a wholly owned subsidiary of Timbercreek Asset Management Inc., is an investment management company that employs a conservative and risk-averse approach to real estate-based investments.  The Manager and its affiliates currently manage approximately $1.4 billion in real estate-related assets, including direct ownership and mortgages. 

The Advisor is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Forum Securities Limited ("Forum Securities"), which is an affiliate of Forum Partners Investment Management LLC ("Forum Partners").  Forum Securities provides a platform for investment in global public real estate securities with over $900 million in assets under management.  Since inception, Forum Securities has demonstrated the ability to continually beat its benchmark while employing similar investment strategies to the Fund.  On June 30, 2009, the Global Real Estate Securities team at Citi joined Forum Partners and created Forum Securities. 

Forum Partners provides real estate related private equity investment opportunities for large institutional clients on a global basis with over $2 billion currently under management.  Forum Partners and Forum Securities have 70 employees in eight offices across Asia, Europe and North America with 13 employees dedicated to global real estate securities analysis.
