Arena Investors unveils $300m fundraising goal for opportunity vehicle


Arena Investors has registered its intention to raise up to $300m for a new fund, Arena Special Opportunities Partners.

The firm has yet to register any capital commitments for the vehicle, as shown in an SEC filing.

No final close date is given for the fund, although Arena indicated in the document that the raise will likely extend into 2021.
