Recently it was announced in a press release that Walker & Dunlop Inc. agreed to buy Alliant Capital Ltd. and its affiliates, including Alliant Strategic Investments. Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (WD:NYSE) is a commercial real estate service and finance company focused on multifamily lending, investment management, debt brokerage, and property sales.

The acquisition of Alliant is a natural extension of Walker & Dunlop’s commitment to affordable housing.

We’ve always been passionate about this investment strategy and partner; and look forward to a continued partnership with Alliant Strategic Investments as they enter this next stage.
