Despite a slowdown in commercial real estate markets, a tough macroeconomic backdrop and tighter lending conditions are set to make property an increasingly attractive means to raise capital, leading to opportunities for corporates and investors alike, according to new research, Leveraging corporate finance to unlock real estate capital.

According to the report, with continued roil global markets and interest rates likely to stay elevated, price corrections in real estate are expected to persist well into second half of 2023. Nonetheless, investor appetite for real assets remains strong, leading to real estate offering clear potential for companies to raise capital on favourable terms.  

The report outlines a range of options for corporates looking to use real estate as a route to access capital, including sale and leaseback transactions, which is expected to see particularly robust growth due to the benefits it offers to both corporates and investors.
