Bell Partners Completes Sale of Final Asset From Bell Apartment Fund IV
GREENSBORO, N.C. (January 28, 2019) — Bell Partners Inc., one of the nation’s leading apartment investment and management companies, today announced that it has sold the final asset from Bell Apartment Fund IV (“the Fund”) and greatly exceeded the Fund’s projected returns.
The Fund achieved a realized internal rate of return (IRR) of 17.0 percent and an equity multiple of 1.9x (net of fees and carried interest). This result was well above target projections.
“Our investment strategy was focused on acquiring institutional-quality apartments in carefully chosen markets around the U.S. and generating attractive total returns through lower risk value enhancement strategies,” said Lili Dunn, President. “We are pleased to have delivered strong results to our investors and grateful for their trust and support.”
The Fund closed in April 2013 with total equity commitments of $200 million. The first asset was acquired in August 2011, and over a period of approximately three years, Bell Partners carefully built a geographically diverse portfolio of 13 well-located, high quality apartment communities. With a disciplined focus and a collaborative team approach, Bell implemented customized strategies to increase cash flow and enhance value.
