Sourcing
Bridge Partners’ sourcing strategy applies an entrepreneurial approach to continuously identify innovative business plans to capitalize on unique opportunities in the market. By leveraging a nationwide network of relationships, Bridge Partners is able to broaden its investment criteria thus eliminating geographic and structural constraints. This broad and progressive mindset has led the firm to expand its business plans beyond the scope of conventional buyers to include acquisitions through GP replacement, external asset management, and foreclosure as lender. Since 1990, Bridge Partners has evolved from investments in RTC and HUD 236 portfolios to successfully executing transactions ranging from student housing rehabilitations to partnership takeovers to distressed debt and REO auctions.

Investment Theory
Bridge Partners is an opportunistic investor who identifies motivated sellers or properties that are under-performing, mismanaged, and/or difficult to finance. Once an investment is identified, Bridge Partners adheres to a prudent and fundamental quantitative methodology by controlling risk assumptions and emphasizing downside protection. The firm believes in engineering value through execution as opposed to timing a given market. Assumptions are carefully formulated, highlighting key economic drivers and quantifiable evidence. Upon acquisition, Bridge Partners efficiently implements a wide range of business plans. Through hands-on asset management, each asset is optimized for disposition as a stabilized liquid investment. By following the disciplined execution of this platform, Bridge Partners’ investments maintain consistent performance through fluctuations in the business cycle.

Profitability
In its 22 year history, Bridge Partners has demonstrated its propensity to achieve successful investment results across various deal structures, business plans and forms of ownership. Bridge Partners’ profitability stems from its experienced team, its disciplined approach, and its commitment to remain progressive. By adhering to these principles, Bridge Partners has retained the confidence of some of the most prominent institutions and investors for over 20 years.
