We believe Bridge’s strategic focus on residential, logistics and yield-oriented investments positions us well for continued success.”
Jonathan Slager, Bridge’s Chief Executive Officer, added “Commercial real estate fundamentals in our specialized segments continue to be strong. Our focus on the value-add sector of target markets and forward integration into property management position Bridge to succeed. We had an active quarter, deploying more than $638.6 million and increasing fee-earning AUM to $14.7 billion, up 43% compared to a year ago. Additionally, strong investment performance year-to-date and another successful fundraising quarter for Bridge totaling $1.1 billion represent a solid beginning for 2022.”
Bridge declared a quarterly dividend of $0.26 per share of its Class A common stock, payable on June 17, 2022 to its Class A common stockholders of record at the close of business on June 3, 2022.
