Walker & Dunlop, Pacific Life to form $500m programmatic joint venture

Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners (WDIP) has partnered with Pacific Life to form a $500 million programmatic joint venture.

The joint venture will invest 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 up to 30 assets with a total value in excess of $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 Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners.

“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.”
