Real estate has always been a core asset class for our clients. Currently, the Group looks after around $1.2 billion of global real estate in fiduciary and fund structures, including hotels, shopping centres, office buildings, warehouses and prime residential property, for both private and corporate clients.
PraxisIFM Real Estate Structuring Solutions (PRESS) brings together our real estate services, giving clients and professional advisors in the real estate world a complete picture of our expertise and experience in establishing and administering these structures.
Our real estate services include:
Fiduciary / SPV Structures
We are able to establish and administer a very wide range of fiduciary / SPV structures to own global real estate, including limited companies, limited partnerships, private trusts, private unit trusts, property unit trusts and protected cell companies. These services can be provided from our offices in Geneva, Guernsey, Luxembourg or Malta, as appropriate or preferred, but are by no means limited to using entities domiciled in those jurisdictions.
Our fund administration businesses in Guernsey, Luxembourg and Malta administer a substantial number of offshore real estate funds (and their underlying SPVs) which can be corporate, unit trust or limited partnership structures.
Real Estate Financing & Advisory Services
Our Corporate Finance team helps clients to source finance and equity for real estate deals, with a main focus on UK transactions. We have very strong relationships with lenders who lend to both simple and very complex offshore structures, and we have particular expertise in helping clients to access mezzanine and bridging finance. In addition, we help to put buyers and sellers together, and to find appropriate partners for development and refurbishment projects. Project sizes range from £1 million to £150 million.
