International real estate investment and services firm Kennedy Wilson (NYSE: KW) today announced that the company and its partner, the European Commercial Real Estate Group of Deutsche Bank AG, acquired a loan portfolio with an unpaid principal balance of €361 million ($449 million).

Mary Ricks, president and CEO of Kennedy Wilson Europe, stated, “This acquisition is a great win for the company and our partner and is a reflection of our robust track record as well as the strength of our local presence in Ireland.”

The properties are predominantly commercial real estate assets across a mixture of asset classes, with the majority located in Dublin. Consensual workouts are in progress in respect of a majority of the assets.

“We are seeing signs of recovery in the Irish property market,” Ricks commented. “Investor confidence is returning and there is a good macro-economic recovery story in Ireland that is starting to play out.”

Gibson Dunn’s London office as well as Dublin-based William Fry provided legal advice on the acquisition.
