Real Estate Debt Investment
A catalyst for real estate transformation.
Why invest in real estate debt?
Property is a core component of the economic engine. Debt financing is an effective way to kickstart a chain of positive transformation in the sector.
Private investment in real estate debt can help regenerate the UK. This can be achieved through making use of brownfield sites, repurposing obsolete buildings, or enhancing the built environment.
In turn, more affordable beds are delivered to the housing market, and more energy-efficient stock is brought to the market more quickly.
