Stirling Infrastructure’s Real Estate Group has worked closely with institutional investors. These investors can forward fund or will co-invest with developers and real estate owners that have a proven track record in delivering projects with reliable and stable income streams. The Real Estate Group advises on structured credit solutions for both senior and mezzanine debt.

In some markets, Stirling Infrastructure can secure special rates that national government-supported institutions can provide on terms not generally available from the commercial lending markets. This type of financing is only available where there is a government strategy to develop certain types of qualifying real estate.

The minimum size debt facility is typically not less than 50 million USD, Euros, GBP or other major currencies, with no upper limit. For the debt or refinancing of high-value residential and commercial schemes, the Real Estate Group can involve multiple lenders to structure a syndicated loan.
