Rupee Funds

Currently, Hawthorne is interested in co-venturing with strong fund managers, focused on promoting real estate projects in such viable markets as Bangalore, Gurgaon, and Bombay. One distinguishing feature of Hawthorne Funds is that it is a totally vertically integrated operation—starting from land aggregation, permits and approvals, master planning of the site, site engineering, construction using the innovative Rockon technology, and sales, and investor payback. The advantage of this high degree of vertical integration is that higher returns are possible for investors, since both quality and price for services are controlled throughout the cycle from acquisition to project liquidation. The powers of economy of scale, the ability to do township-scale projects, and US-style project management skills are all brought to bear in management of this fund.

This fund will be suitable for Indian citizens, NRIs, PIOs, and OCIs since it is a 100% rupee fund.

Dollar fund:

Hawthorne is also launching a dollar fund with specific Indian real estate focus, aimed mainly at institutional investors. This fund will be based in Mauritius, and its business strategy will be similar to the rupee fund, except for the fact that this fund will undertake projects of much larger sizes than the rupee fund. The fund’s size is $500m. This fund also will follow a fully vertically integrated model of land acquisition, permits, and approvals, construction utilizing the proprietary Rockon technology, sales, and return of capital and profits, thus forming a closed loop.
