Texas is an important state for private equity real estate fund managers. The 44 firms located in the state have raised an aggregate $50.7 billion for private equity real estate investments in the last 10 years.

In terms of fundraising, the most successful year was 2008, when 15 funds raised an aggregate $15.5 billion. Lone Star Fund VI and Lone Star Real Estate Fund I accounted for $7.5 billion and $2.5 billion of the total respectively. There was a significant decline in the amount of capital raised in 2009 however. Just three funds managed by Texas-headquartered firms reached a final close, raising $340 million.

Lone Star Funds has been the most successful Texas-headquartered firm in the fundraising market. In the last 10 years it has raised $24.2 billion. Rockpoint Group has raised an aggregate $6.4 billion, including raising $2.5 billion for Rockpoint Real Estate Fund III.
