Boasting over 60 active debit and equity providers, including banks both large and small, and mortgage trusts which provide the ability to create “appropriate levels of competitive appetite,”HoldenCAPITAL has quickly become Australia’s number one specialist construction finance group, being recognised as a market leader as a result of its accomplishments in deal structuring and sourcing of debt and equity solutions. Today, clients look to HoldenCAPITAL to secure their debit and equity requirements, allowing the company to source and negotiate more flexible terms from its banks, non-bank institutions, mortgage funds and trusted relationships with private lenders.
“Our primary focus is to leverage our collective skills, knowledge, resources and relationships to structure project finance solutions as well as the provision of equity to minimise the risks and maximise the return to our clients – all while taking into account the interest of all stakeholders,” says Steve Wiltshire, Executive Chairman of HoldenCAPITAL.“What’s more, in addition to boasting a strong and successful record in the areas of sourcing and negotiating joint venture partnerships for medium to large-sized projects, HoldenCAPITAL also provides direct mezzanine finance rates and equity solutions to qualified clients through our Queen Street Invest (QSI), a joint initiative to provide developers with access to mezzanine, equity and preferred equity investment funds.
