The real estate fund builds upon the General Partners' 10-year track record in the luxury vacation rental home market

NEW YORK and COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 30, 2024-- East Chop Capital (East Chop) today marks the successful closure of its Fund II at $11 million, which focuses exclusively on luxury vacation rental homes.

"Fund II is about scale and pattern recognition as we invest in undiscovered, overlooked/undervalued, or value-add vacation rental homes and developments across the United States," said Carrington M. Carter, Co-founder and General Partner. "We're pleased to already be putting this capital to work in Florida and Texas."

Fund II drew equity investments from 93 LPs, including Liberty Financial Services.

East Chop closed its first fund in December 2020 at $4 million, which is currently on track to deliver 25% returns, net of fees, and a focus on the $75 billion global vacation market that is projected to reach over $130 billion by 2033.

With an emerging presence in private equity, East Chop unveils a divergent new blueprint for capital deployment, promising innovation and growth for investors and founders.

The firm has also invested in technology, financial services, media, and professional sports, and is the largest minority-led investment group in Uncle Nearest, Inc. With $30 million in AUM, East Chop's growing network includes approximately 200 investors, 90% of whom are Black, and approximately 23% of whom are women.

"East Chop Capital is building on its extensive ecosystem to educate investors in private equity and venture capital, and simultaneously opening doors to unique investment opportunities," said Calvin L. Butts, Jr., Co-founder and General Partner. "These key pillars are part of our philosophy of investing to build generational wealth while tackling socioeconomic disparity."
