Debt and Equity Advisory

Secure the best financing partners.

With Loan to Value (LTV) often between 50 - 70%, we understand how critical debt financing can be. Our financing professionals actively maintain relationships with national and international capital solutions providers, debt funds, commercial banks and private equity firms.

We bring together those relationships with our real estate experience and proprietary modelling to provide insights into capital market conditions, providing you with a competitive advantage in debt and equity placements or refinancing. 

We understand all commercial property types  including  office, retail, logistics, hotels and residential. We have a detailed understanding of the commercial property lending climate in  the Czech Republic and can manage the loan documentation process on your behalf. 

We define a suitable financing structure to be used for your project. We can provide you with all competitive financing conditions available on the market, including long term financing through a tender process. We analyse your financing needs. This can include options on equity release, mezzanine  finance  and  other  capital  transaction  types eg. finance, restructuring, loan modification, loan vs. sale.
