Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners and Pacific Life Announce $500M Joint Venture
JV will invest in value-add multifamily and industrial properties across the United States
Released | June 1, 2022
Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners, Inc. (WDIP), announced today that it has partnered with Pacific Life to form a $500 million programmatic joint venture.
The joint venture will make equity investments in multifamily and industrial properties across the United States. Focusing on the robust middle market of real estate, the partnership will invest $15 million to $50 million in equity per deal alongside sponsors with track records of successful value-add transactions. WDIP expects the joint venture to invest in 20 and 30 individual properties, with a total value of more than $1.5 billion.
“With the current market dynamics in commercial real estate, industrial and multifamily provide more stability than other property types, and we continue to see a steady deal flow of attractive value-add opportunities in these asset classes,” said Mitch Resnick, President of WDIP. “For many owners and operators, it has become even more important to gain access to strategic capital to fill their capital stacks. This partnership with Pacific Life will enable us to continue deploying capital in high quality opportunities across the country.”
