Arcapita Group Holdings (“Arcapita”), the global alternative investment firm, recently announced completing the acquisition of Nationwide Property and Appraisal Services, LLC (“Nationwide”), a second-largest independent appraisal management company in the United States.

The firm serves out the mortgage lending institutions across all 50 states from funds associated with Corridor Capital, LLC (“Corridor”), a leading lower middle-market private equity firm.

Additionally, according to Arcapita, the Corridor will partner with the firm and Nationwide, holding an ownership stake Nationwide.

As per the firm’s reports, Arcapita’s management team has completed over $15 billion in US private equity investments over the past 24 years.
