Structured Finance and Investment

It’s in our DNA to simplify and manage the most complex of financing and investment transactions.

Decades of experience in Melbourne’s high end property projects and enterprises has given us rare insights into risk management.

Dealing with major banks and second tier lenders, we have recently transacted debt and equity deals which exceed $500 million across multiple transactions.

Our clients include mezzanine and family office lenders, private equity, property developers and high net worth investors.

We have built a team that puts that experience to use for lenders, borrowers and investors in complex debt and equity deals of all kinds, whether property or business based.

Experience is the difference.

  • Property construction funding of circa $300 million from an offshore lender.
  • Mezzanine loans secured by properties and joint venture interests around Australia.
