Building liquidity
through sale and leaseback

Is your property portfolio a source of untapped value for your business? The sale and leaseback of real estate assets can raise capital and deliver greater liquidity for your company.

Why unlock capital from your real estate?

EMEA Head of Corporate Capital Markets, Nick Compton, explains why sale and leaseback activity has been rising in popularity as a business tool
Raising capital from your company’s property by the sale and leaseback of individual assets or whole portfolios can be highly beneficial.  Monetising your real estate can help:
•  Provide access to alternative capital sources
•  Release capital to increase liquidity
•  Fund M&A, new technology, modernisation or pension deficits
•  Capitalise on specific property market sale conditions
We bring together extensive knowledge and skills, which range from transaction negotiation and execution to accounting, financial modelling and analysis, to ensure an optimal tailored solution which will successfully match your business and funding objectives with the right investor.
