Finance for specialised property assets in areas or of a type which have limited appetite from banks
CORPORATE PROPERTY FINANCE
Centuria Bass provides high loan-to-value (LVR) lending, secured against real estate held by mid-sized companies across a wide variety of industries. Many companies hold specialised property and from time to time require higher leverage which can be repaid from forecast operating cash flow.
We are relationship driven and highly value a long-term partnership approach. In the spirit of this partnership approach we are able to extend our relationship from being a lender to being both a provider or mezzanine debt, preferred equity and equity investments.
The team structures transactions on a bespoke basis enabling funding solutions that are free from the product and policy constraints typical of traditional mainstream debt providers and investors.
