As traditional banks tighten, alternative lenders are entering the market. Domestic and offshore private funds, super funds, listed funds, family offices, investment banks and other managers and institutions are establishing themselves in this market and the value proposition for each lender is slightly different. 

If you’re a developer of real estate, we believe your lenders should truly be capital partners and thus chosen carefully.  Be it reputation, track record, price, pre-commitment hurdles, leverage, covenants or security requirements, our team is committed to procuring development funding from the best partner, on the best terms for your project.

Assets to be repositioned often face a period of limited to no income generation, with capital to be invested in advance of value being realised. In the absence of recourse and a very conservative gearing level, traditional banks are seldom there to fund these types of deals, even where the fundamentals stack up. However, alternative lenders are open for business when it comes to financing value-add opportunities.

Key to getting these financing deals across the line is the quality of underwrite. We are expert at driving optimal financing outcomes by leveraging the full spectrum of real estate expertise within Colliers. We endeavour to truly understand an asset, arming us with the knowledge to address perceived funding risks, structure around them and position financing opportunities in the best possible light.
