Bridge Investment Group Raises $2.26 Billion for Bridge Multifamily V, Largest Dedicated Multifamily Fund
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bridge Investment Group Holdings Inc. (NYSE: BRDG) (“Bridge” or the “Company”) today announced the close of Bridge Multifamily Fund V (“Multifamily Fund V” or the “Fund”) with $2.26 billion in equity commitments, the largest dedicated multifamily fund ever raised.
Multifamily Fund V represents a differentiated, data-driven investment strategy focused primarily on value-add, Class B multifamily housing properties in high-growth markets with strong macro-economic prospects. With conservative financing strategies, a deep network of relationships and an exceptional in-house property management team, Bridge has a long track record of creating tangible value for residents and resilient income streams for investors.
Bridge drives value by making significant upgrades to unit interiors and common areas, while executing with a vertically integrated, best-in-class property management team that includes more than 1,500 specialized employees.
“We believe the multifamily market will continue to experience positive secular macroeconomic conditions for the foreseeable future, and we are excited to deploy the capital raised in Multifamily Fund V at what we view as an attractive point in the cycle,” said Jonathan Slager, Chief Executive Officer of Bridge.
“Market demand for well-amenitized and affordable multifamily housing is projected to outpace supply, despite high unit deliveries expected over the next two years,” added Colin Apple, Co-Chief Investment Officer for Bridge’s multifamily strategy. “Our multifamily strategy has delivered strong performance for more than a decade, and we look forward to utilizing our purpose-built platform to thoughtfully deploy capital and have a positive impact in today’s residential rental market.”
