These strategies leverage off our competitive advantages, principally the strength of our infrastructure with its ability to provide optimal sourcing, valuation and hands-on operational expertise. Our involvement can take on a variety of different forms: as investor, co-investor, operating partner or originator.
Creation of value within investment themes by using the insight afforded by our pan-European platform. A variety of strategies are employed and targeted at specific situations, sectors, geographies or asset classes.
Provision of whole loan senior facilities secured against UK and European commercial real estate assets. Target loans have strong credit and return fundamentals, but are within market segments which are affected by the gradual withdrawal of banks from commercial real estate lending activities.
Provision of bespoke and often hybrid loan facilities. The typical leverage and complexity of these transactions and their often operationally-intensive business plans renders them unsuited to traditional lenders. Structures include senior and mezzanine debt, and preferred equity.
Acquisition of non-core loans, including non-performing and sub-performing loans. These may be sourced directly from de-leveraging banks or the secondary market. We are involved in the process of sourcing, pricing, execution, servicing and resolution. We participate in various formats as investors, co-investors, or operating partners.
