Mezzanine finance combines elements of debt financing and equity investment; it can be a relatively cost-effective way to finance growth strategies that entail an element of risk. It is provided by specialist funders, often at a higher rate due to the risk, and they might require a profit share in addition to interest. Each lender has a slightly different approach according to project type and to the security required.
Mezzanine finance includes an additional layer of debt behind the main debt, enabling you to complete your project when the initial financing was insufficient. As many banks and high street lenders have tightened their criteria for lending in recent years, many business owners and property developers are now benefitting from mezzanine financing.
We have access to all the key lenders in this market to enable us to source the most appropriate finance for each specific situation and employ creative solutions for our clients to optimise their borrowing strategy.
