Somerset Real Estate Opportunity Fund II
We don’t time the market. Experience has taught us that at any given time in the business cycle there are attractive opportunities to invest; the key is knowing what to buy when.

Mr. Brady founded Somerset Properties in 1996 and has been in the commercial real estate business since 1980. During his career he has been responsible for acquiring, developing, managing, and financing millions of square feet of commercial office, industrial, retail, and multi-family properties in the U.S.
Principal and CIO
For the past thirty years Mr. White has been actively involved in all facets of owning and operating commercial real estate. During his career he has acquired, developed, and managed more than 10 million square feet of commercial property transactions valued at more than $2 billion including office, industrial, multi-family, retail, and hospitality properties in the U.S.
OBJECTIVE: Acquire underperforming, income-producing properties that can be improved to increase value and generate high risk–adjusted returns. We reposition our properties to accommodate the changing needs of today’s new economy tenants. With a target asset allocation of 40% offices, 40% industrial and 20% other.
ADAPT PORTFOLIO: We focus on opportunistic, value-add, core-plus and distressed deal profiles depending on the business cycle. We partner with private equity capital where appropriate, but retain flexibility to close deals internally. This helps ensure certainty of execution and allows for creative deal structuring. Our investors in the fund participate in the General Partner Promote, the carried interest earned by Somerset Properties in joint ventures.
