Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners Closes Five Equity Investments

Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners (“WDIP”) today announced the closing of its most recent investments of its equity investment platform. Sized to efficiently deploy capital in smaller middle-market deals, these investments are part of WDIP’s opportunistic strategy sleeve which focuses on a space where the team expects to see the bulk of distressed properties and value dislocation in the current environment and off-market deal flow.

“A fractured lending market and high borrowing rates are creating a material valuation reset across all asset classes today. Our strategy is to capitalize on this dynamic within the asset classes that have the strongest underlying long-term fundamentals and find opportunities where the stabilized yield profile provides insulation against sustained rate increases,” said Marcus Duley, chief investment officer of WDIP. “We anticipate opportunities in the smaller middle market space, where syndicators and less-capitalized owners facing loan maturities lack the liquidity for a cash-in refinance. It is also a space where larger institutional fund managers are unable to invest with scale. While our current seed portfolio is weighted more towards industrial, we expect to pivot to residential when record debt maturity volume in late 2024 and 2025 creates an opportunistic buying environment.”
