Investment in Proportionate Ownership Schemes – also known as syndication - enables investors’ group ownership in strong commercial property assets without the day-to-day hassle of property management. Colliers International New Zealand Syndication team evolved as a specialist business unit to provide capital raising expertise to clients seeking private equity investment for commercial real estate acquisitions.
Since its inception three years ago, the division has been involved in over $250 million in capital raisings, generating funds for syndicated investment assets in both New Zealand and Australia. On behalf of a range of clients, the Colliers Syndication team regularly brings new commercial properties to the syndication market. These opportunities generally offer above-average cash returns to investors, ordinarily paid on a monthly basis, backed by the relative security of proportional ownership of direct property assets – making them an effective investment tool in our clients’ portfolios. With over 400 Colliers International commercial property staff in 19 offices across New Zealand, our distribution channels are well-positioned to co-ordinate and tap into the proportionate ownership markets nationwide.
Despite being relatively small, the team is without peer in terms of its experience, trusted reputation, relationships and track record. These factors ensure repeat business, giving the team the professional expertise required to achieve excellent results.
Ongoing success is due to effective co- ordination of individual skillsets among our team. The group works on all projects together, giving clients access to the full range of expertise and contacts.
Colliers International has extensive relationships with a range of clients in New Zealand and Australia. However, for Colliers’ Syndication division to raise capital on
behalf of a client, the offer must pass a rigorous internal vetting process as agreed by an appointed investment panel – comprised of senior Colliers International management.
