Debt Advisory

Get the best financing for your real estate projects.

In a rapidly changing market, sources of real estate funding multiply and potential solutions become more complex. Alongside traditional lenders, alternative lenders have entered the play, such as debt funds or mezzanine lenders. Each has a loan policy of its own: eligible assets, tenor, margin, etc…

In this context, seeking financing or refinancing could be time-consuming and tedious. The JLL Debt Advisory teams bring to you a unique sourcing and transaction management service.

In direct and daily contact with lenders, we are well aware of the v arious pockets of financing and their evolution. Our approach is based on our in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of the real estate market and its participants at the national, European and global levels. Combined with our experience in structured real estate financing, our team is a guarantee of receiving relevant recommendations.

Using the JLL Debt Advisory team means:
 - Bringing credibility to the process vis-à-vis potential lenders
 - Ensuring all the options / structures have been investigated
 - Creating competition among lenders (terms and timing of the financing)
 - Saving valuable time
 - Relying on the strength of an International property advisor and reaching foreign alternative lenders
 - Ensuring full confidentiality of your project throughout the process

Whether for the refinancing of existing loans (including extension, partial recapitalization, etc.), for acquisition financing or for loan restructuring, our missions are carried out according to an approved methodology.

Throughout Europe, the JLL teams have advised on and arranged circa €2.5 billion of debt in the past two years as part of a one-stop-shop approach to our clients’ real estate needs.

By 2014, we estimate that $384 billion of commercial real estate loans will mature in Europe. For France only, there should be €12-13 billion needed for refinancing and €3-4 billion for acquisitions financing per year.

All of this will not be met by the banks. Understanding and tapping other funding sources will be crucial.
