A pair of private equity firms is set to do battle for a major servicer of delinquent mortgages.
Both Apollo Global Management and Centerbridge Capital Partners are bidding for CW Financial Services. The New York-based company’s CWCapital Asset Management is the second-largest manager of delinquent U.S. commercial real-estate loans, with more than $18 million in delinquent loans.
All told, CWCapital services $143 billion in securitized real-estate loans.
The company, currently majority-owned by a unit of Canada’s largest public pension plan, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, is expected to get more than $200 million at auction, Bloomberg News reports.
Apollo and Centerbridge may also be joined by a Berkshire Hathaway and Leucadia National Corp. joint venture, Berkadia Commercial Mortgage, which bought Capmark Financial Group’s loan-servicing and mortgage business in December.
