TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - January 23, 2017) - Timbercreek Global Real Estate Fund (the "Fund") (TSX: TGF.UN) is pleased to announce it has declared a special distribution of $0.05 per class A unit of the Fund ("Class A Units") and $0.05 per class B unit of the Fund ("Class B Units") payable to holders of Class A Units and Class B Units of record on February 27, 2017. The distribution will be paid to such unitholders on March 15, 2017.

The special distribution is in addition to the Fund's distribution announced on December 20, 2016, as a result of a surplus of distributable income generated in 2016.

"The volatility through 2016 allowed us to make opportunistic investments, which enhanced our overall distributable income and allowed the Fund to generate a strong total return relative to the benchmark in 2016. We expect these investments to continue to pay significant dividends and achieve attractive total returns in the long term," commented Corrado Russo, Portfolio Manager of the Fund.
