Joint Venture Equity

Bridgewater Capital Partners effectively matches clients with capital partners who have similar investment and operating goals and objectives. Through our extensive network and longstanding relationships with leading domestic and international institutional investors and family offices/private investors, Bridgewater Capital Partners can provide our clients with financing upwards of 97% of the capital stack. Projects are typically structured as a 90/10 equity contribution, and are evaluated on a case by case basis. Our broad range of services includes:

  • Property Acquisitions
  • JV Gap Equity for Development projects
  • Condo conversions
  • Raising equity for open and closed end funds
  • Blind pool fund raising.
  • Entity or portfolio joint venture recapitalizations.

Bridgewater Capital Partners combines in-depth real estate knowledge and extensive private capital markets expertise with a tailored approach, a confidential and efficient marketing process, and an optimally negotiated transaction structure to maximize results for our clients for both stabilized and transitional transactions.

Our real-time asset and capital markets knowledge, and experience across all levels of the capital stack helps us develop deal-specific equity financing strategies that best meet our client’s objectives.

Mezzanine loans have become a common alternative to subordinate financing when senior loans prohibit the placement of junior liens on a property.

Investment Profile:

Mezzanine financing is designed for sponsors seeking to bridge the gap between the senior debt proceeds and equity, often substantially reducing the amount of equity required. Programs can target nearly stabilized, shorter term transactions requiring bridge financing and/or urgent time frames requiring certainty of execution.

Typical Profiles:

  • Transitional (Light Value Added)
  • Opportunistic Transactions (including Ground-Up Construction).
  • Recapitalization and Restructures
  • New Acquisitions
  • REO Financing

Sponsor Equity

Bridgewater Capital will selectively co-invest or arrange co-investment equity with successful investors and developers of most property types across the United States.

Bridgewater Capital Partners actively seek opportunities to co-invest a portion of the equity with qualified sponsors, further reducing the amount of cash investment required from our clients.

Our Sponsor Equity services typically include the following:

  • Bridgewater Capital Partners provides a majority of the co-investment equity required from the sponsor/client, as part of an equity joint venture. That co-investment normally ranges from 10-50% of the total equity requirement;
  • Raising the remaining equity and debt required, above and beyond the Sponsor Equity;
  • Providing our expertise to craft deal structures that produce creative solutions to difficult deal problems, including fast-track closings.

Bridgewater Capital’s credit enhancement services can make it possible for borrowers to enhance their net worth (and liquidity) in order to meet requirements for bank debt financing. These services may also include bank loan guarantees. Projects are evaluated on a case by case basis, and pricing guidelines can be subject to the following:

  • Economic strength of the project.
  • Sponsor’s track record.
  • Loan amount.
  • Term of loan and amount of guarantee.
