John Paulson Discloses New Stake in Green REIT

John Paulson’s hedge fund, Pauson & Co, has disclosed a new position in Green REIT (LON: GRN).  Green REIT recently raised 320m euros via a public offering in Dublin and London.  According to a disclosure made on July 22nd,  Paulson & Co hold 12.92% of the voting rights.    

The company’s name perhaps suggests that it is involved in environmentally friendly investing but in this case the “green”  refers to Ireland and Green REIT is Ireland’s first real estate investment trust.  Green REIT will focus on buying commercial property in the Dublin area.
