“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart”. (Nelson Mandela – Statesman)
At Beacon Wood we are conversant with the language of property financing and we can ease the communication between borrower and financier; determining the needs of the client and presenting them in the language of their lender.
Financing property is an integral part of any property investment strategy. At its simplest property funding is there to improve returns, but it is important to understand if it has changed the risk profile, too, and in what way. In addition, funding can be a useful way of partnering project risk – particularly in development work, but also in bridging a gap between an investors funds and those available in the form of senior debt.
Beacon Wood’s team have funded over £1.0billion of property transactions including sourcing senior debt and providing mezzanine finance and equity through partnership structures. An understand of the financing markets is an important adjunct to the property skills required to implement any business strategy applied to investment in property.
