With more then 35 years of banking experience, our Debt Advisory team are the experts at sourcing the best debt terms for acquisitions. We target qualified lenders within our extensive network that we know will deliver and this is evidenced by our track record – 100% of the acquisition financings arranged by Colliers International Debt Advisory have achieved settlement within the required timeframe.
We specialise in benchmarking your financing arrangements against what is achievable in the current debt market to see that your investment objectives are being achieved and to maximise the potential of your property. Our experience enables us to identify hidden value traps in financing agreements. Be it in covenants, pricing, hedging, break costs or other ‘below-the-line’ items, all critical terms and conditions are reviewed and, if appropriate, contested, to achieve the best outcome.
In addition to diversifying financier relationships, we have achieved annual interest cost savings for our clients in excess of 20% through refinances.
For clients with a core focus and expertise in day-to-day real estate investing, developing and managing but require that extra capital injection to grow, our team has a proven track record in pairing private and institutional capital with compatible managers and joint venture partners.
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.
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 International. 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.
