How we work

Understanding risk appetite is paramount. From high street banks to pension funds, specialist and peer-to-peer lenders, we track market information and lender policies. Structuring optimal lending in changing markets is where we truly add value. We approach only the most suitable providers, leveraging our credit expertise into client savings.

Engaging us entirely delegates:

  • Strategic analysis of gearing, debt maturity, capital allocation and funding structures
  • Modelling and stress testing to determine equity required
  • Sourcing and presenting to lenders
  • Negotiating pricing, covenants and other requirements
  • Reports for investors and boards
  • Optimal debt structuring, including project timetable
  • Management of the draw down process from conception to completion

Through expertise and relationships, we are trusted by our clients and lenders to bring perspective to the structuring of debt within real estate portfolios.

We are lender-impartial and free from bias or incentives. By representing the borrower, we equip our clients to make best-informed lending decisions.

In addition to providing real estate finance solutions, we work closely with the Colliers Advisory & Restructuring team who specialise in supporting corporate restructuring, turnaround and insolvency situations – find out more here.

This enables us to provide truly end-to-end advice regarding loan origination, interim monitoring and exit across performing and non-performing assets.
