PC2 Capital LP (“Manager” or “PC2”) is a private investment firm that focuses on commercial real estate securities. In October 2023, PC2 was acquired by Prosperise Capital LLP (“Prosperise”) and operates as a US subsidiary. PC2 offers investors access to the CMBS market, which, due to the lack of trade reporting or central clearing (OTC Market), is difficult for both individual and institutional investors to enter. PC2’s combination with Prosperise gives investors access to this market with the benefit of institutional management, infrastructure, and a strong track record of success.
PC2 believes current CMBS market conditions provide an attractive entry point given historically wide spreads, all in yields and discount dollar prices. With a breadth of experience investing across credit cycles, PC2 Capital is well positioned to help investors capitalize on both the current market dislocation and the longer-term opportunities in the CMBS market by leveraging their expertise in credit underwriting, trading, macro analysis and a large pool of industry-wide contacts for sourcing.
Founded in 2020 by Pasquale Cardone II, PC2 Capital draws on it's principal's extensive capital market experience to find attractively priced commercial real estate securities across public and private markets.
