DiLella Mulroy Fund

In 2018, VSB and the Daniel M. DiLella Center for Real Estate launched the Daniel M. DiLella and Thomas M. Mulroy (DiLella Mulroy Fund) Real Estate Student Managed Fund. Villanova University is the first university to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to manage a real estate investment fund.

The fund consists of students serving as senior managers, analysts and interns who work cohesively to research, evaluate and underwrite potential commercial real estate investment opportunities.

In addition to the DiLella Mulroy Fund’s student leadership, Business Fellow Vincent Sanfilippo assists and advises students with their investment strategies. Previously the CIO of CenterSquare Investment Management (formerly Urdang Capital Management), Mr. Sanfilippo shares his decades of industry experience with Villanova real estate students. The investment committee also includes Michelle Bennett of Newport Capital Group, Daniel DiLella of Equus Capital Partners, Shane McAndrew of Villanova University, Jon Miniman of CBRE Clarion Securities, Thomas Mulroy of T-Rex Capital Group and Gerard Sweeney of Brandywine Realty Trust.

The Fund is organized to co-invest with sponsors and operators on projects in the United States. Co-investments with the Fund will create a mutually beneficial partnership that will provide student members real-world experience in the industry and give firms the opportunity to have Villanova University as an investment partner. The DiLella Mulroy Fund has invested in various real estate property types.

We are actively seeking existing value-add or development projects that may be a potential fit for an investment by our Fund. Please keep the Fund in mind and contact us for any current or future projects that allow us to consider a co-investment.
