Arc & Co. Advise on £7.4m Purchase in Kensington

Eugene Tripuk, Head of Russia and CIS desk at Arc & Co. has closed a £4.8m loan on behalf of a Russian client.

Eugene explains "The finance was for a residential property purchase in Kensington for a Russian client with a rubble income deriving from assets in Russia. The main achievement is that we managed to secure a straightforward mortgage from a private bank at a very competitive rate, and we did so, without the requirement to have assets under management. Considering the market is more cautious of Russian clients at the moment, to achieve something like this, is a great result!"  See below for the details:

Finance for CIS clients

Since the implementation of increased sanctions from the west, clients resident in CIS region countries certainly raise challenges for us when helping them to utilize the full potential of the current credit market.  Weak local CIS currencies, increasingly strict regulation policy and limited appetite from lenders to finance those clients means access to cheaper finance is narrow or non-existent.  Despite this our CIS desk has placed more than £500M in finance.

Arc & Co. is a specialist in assisting CIS clients.  Over the last 10 years we have helped our clients access the best available products in the market tailored to their particular needs in terms of gearing level, pricing and duration whilst taking account of circumstances like nationality, residency, the source of wealth, types of the underlying asset and the client’s income.  During an initial phone call, based on our experience, we can predict what is achievable for the client in the current market conditions. We can assist in cases of short time frame, ongoing loan term expiry, lack of liquidity or the lender particular jurisdiction/asset policy change through to giving advice in cases of debt structuring like refinancing, acquisition financing or equity release.
