LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–HIG Capital, LLC (“HIG”), a leading global alternative investment firm with more than $47 billion in equity under management, today announced that an affiliate has added a additional asset to New Life Realty, HIG’s platform focused on life sciences real estate investments. The property is located in the heart of the Whitechapel Life Sciences cluster and brings New Life Realty to a total value of over £250 million.
Riccardo Dallolio, Managing Director and Head of HIG Europe Realty in London, said: “We are delighted to expand our life sciences portfolio, which benefits from strong fundamentals given the lack of modern space and the exceptional demand tenants.
