Debt and Structured Finance specialises in originating, structuring and servicing debt and equity across all real estate sectors. In New Zealand we can provide property investors and developers with complete funding solutions sourced not only from domestic lending institutions but also from a wider pool of international capital sources ranging from off-shore banks to life insurance companies, pension, sovereign wealth and investment funds.

As the licensed financial services line of CBRE Limited (FSP 530646) in New Zealand, Debt and Structured Finance mirrors our business structure in the majority of global markets where CBRE has a presence and is designed to provide clients with real advantage when it comes to commercial real estate financing options.

We aim to achieve that outcome principally by making full use of CBREs scope, global scale and ongoing market participation to map and monitor funding market conditions across the capital stack ensuring the structure, pricing and cost of finance is optimised at all times. Last year the Debt and Structured Finance team was involved in over $50bn of loan transactions, sourced from over 330 lenders across the globe.

CBREs advantage, over situations where Borrowers are engaging with the market only sporadically, is that we are constantly active in this space, participating week in week out with transactions across all sectors and value ranges, which provides us with unparalleled insights into market conditions; insights that we can put to good use on behalf of our clients. Our service is independent, specialised to real estate, strictly confidential to the client and delivered at a cost-effective price.
