Morgan Properties Closes Five Freddie Mac K-Series “B-Pieces” Across $5.3 Billion in Total Loans in 2019

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.--()--Morgan Properties, a real estate investment and management company, announced today that it has acquired five separate K-Series B-Pieces from Freddie Mac in 2019. The total size of those five deals is $5.3 billion and encompasses more than 50,000 units. The five B-Pieces that Morgan Properties acquired had a total face amount of $400 million. Additionally, $674 million, or 13 percent of the total unpaid principal balance (UPB), were loans where Morgan Properties was also the underlying borrower.

Since launching its credit platform in September 2017, Morgan Properties has closed on nine K-Series B-Pieces across $8.5 billion in loans, of which $1.4 billion, or 16% of the total UPB, were loans where Morgan Properties was the underlying borrower. The nine B-Pieces have a total face amount of $637 million.

“Since launching our credit platform in 2017, we have quickly become one of the most active Freddie Mac B-Piece investors. Our ability to leverage off our team’s multifamily expertise and proprietary data analytics will result in superior risk-adjusted returns to our investors,” said Jason Morgan, Principal at Morgan Properties. “Additionally, we have actively pursued opportunities where Morgan Properties loans represent a significant concentration of the total collateral, which provides us further confidence in these investments given our company’s exemplary track record. We look forward to investing in Freddie Mac’s K-Series Program in 2020 and beyond.”
