Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners, Pacific Life Forge Programmatic JV
Denver-based Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners, Inc. (WDIP) said Wednesday it had partnered with Pacific Life to form a $500-million programmatic joint venture.
The JV will make equity investments in multifamily and industrial properties nationwide. Focusing on the middle market, 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 JV to invest in up to 30 assets with a total value exceeding $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, newly promoted to president of WDIP.
Separately, Walker & Dunlop announced that Resnick had been named head of the newly formed Investment Management & Proprietary Capital Group.
