ASSESSING RISK WITH AN OWNER’S MENTALITY
Bridge invests in commercial real estate-backed fixed income, offering attractive current income and carefully-managed risk. We bring an “owner’s mentality” to our efforts and only lend against assets we would be comfortable owning.
A METHOD YOU CAN TRUST
Bridge Debt Strategies Fund Manager LLC specializes in two primary areas: Freddie Mac K-Series B-pieces, and first mortgage lending on transitional opportunities.
Over the past two years, we have been Freddie Mac’s largest counterparty in the K-Series B-Piece program. Furthermore, we generally acquire these securities through a direct placement process and not an auction. Freddie Mac is the largest U.S. multifamily lender, with highly conservative underwriting standards and has an exemplary track record in multifamily lending.
Bridge Agency MBS Fund Manager LLC invests in residential mortgage-backed securities (“Agency MBS”) guaranteed by U.S. Government Sponsored Enterprises (“GSE”), in a proprietary structure designed to mitigate market dislocations and preserve principal. The GSE guarantee of principal and interest mitigates underlying borrower credit risk in the Agency MBS market. Bridge’s deep relationships with the GSEs dates back to the early 1990s.
