Leading Asset Finance Advisory Helps Fund EquaGroup’s Completed Project

Arc&Co. has had the pleasure of working with a very active developer in the Essex regions. Equagroup Ltd have focused on taking advantage of PDR opportunities in Colchester and Braintree.  Just over 12 months ago we put in place their development facility for their scheme Oak House, the project is now fully complete and sold within weeks of being on the market.

The Project was funded by Zorin Finance, who have been fully supportive of EquaGroup and their scheme. Zorin’s origination Manager, Henry Wilson-Holt goes on to say, “Our thanks go to Arc&Co. for their hard work and assistance in getting this transaction completed initially. This scheme has now been redeemed ahead of schedule and above Redbook value – this goes to show the quality of projects EquaGroup work on, and the local-market knowledge they have.”

Mark Stokes, Director of EquaGroup states, “We are delighted at EquaGroup with this exclusive development completed to such exacting standards and delivering on its promise to all stakeholders including our funding and investment partners, shareholders and of course the local community.”

Since then they have started work on two different PD projects which are going to PC in early 2019. We pride ourselves on repeat business and working with EquaGroup is a prime example.

Review of 2017 and the year ahead

2017 is coming to a close and despite a troublesome financial market, Arc & Co. have had another successful year. As a team we have organised and structured over £450m of loans.

Although the headlines suggest a volatile market, there has been an increase in the amount of liquidity available and the majority of funders are still keen to deploy money into both development and investment transactions.

We have arranged 70 loans across the capital stack throughout the year, ranging from a 17.5% LTV investment facility on a central London property, up to 95% LTC/75% LTGDV on large residential developments.

Please find below a list of products we put in place throughout 2017:

·         Development & conversion loans throughout the capital stack

·         Bridge loans to purchase

·         Bridge loans to purchase, rolled into development facilities

·         Development exit bridges

·         Investment loans for purchase or refinance (in many cases releasing capital for re-investment)

·         Bridge to purchase and stabilise, rolled into long-term investment money

In 2018 we hope to do much of the same using our expertise in structuring real estate loans for all areas of the market.  If you have any transactions in the pipeline for 2018 that you would like to discuss, please make contact.
