March 13 (Bloomberg) -- Kennedy Wilson Holdings Inc., a real-estate services company, is forming a partnership with Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. to buy European commercial property, the companies said today in a statement.

Fairfax will commit 250 million euros alongside a 10 percent co-investment from Beverly Hills, California-based Kennedy Wilson. The fund is a follow-up to Kennedy Wilson’s and Fairfax’s fully invested $278 million U.S. real estate investment partnership.
