CRE debt professionals
We have been active in the commercial real estate debt market since 1934 and have more than 50 seasoned experts in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States who are supported by an established real estate investment platform, ensuring our ability to source and manage the very best opportunities for our clients.
Why CRE debt now?
due to lack of liquidity; many banks and levered lenders have ceased new investment activity
A strong pipeline
is anticipated given ongoing loan maturities and event-driven strategic opportunities
Attractive risk-adjusted returns
are expected given reduced competition, better pricing and conservatively adjusted underwriting and valuations
