EMEA Corporate Finance

Our extensive understanding of how finance is linked into real estate is reflected in the integration of Corporate Finance into our Capital Markets business, providing financial advisory and execution services to investors, occupiers and fund managers.

Our talented individuals come from banking, accounting, fund management and real estate backgrounds and advise clients on integrated real estate and corporate finance solutions.   

Cushman & Wakefield works with all major global real estate markets and their participants, be they occupiers, sponsors or investors/sources of capital. We ensure that solutions are tailored to prevailing real estate and capital markets conditions. 

How we can help?

We advise on loan structuring, origination, restructuring and re-financing solutions across the capital stack. We maintain strong relationships with many UK and European lenders and have the knowledge and capability to structure and arrange the optimal debt package.

Equity Advisory

We advise fund sponsors on the structuring and launch of funds and joint-ventures and similarly advise investors considering investments into these collective investment schemes.

Occupier Solutions

We advise occupiers on to align their real estate interests to their corporate strategy. Advising on transactions including sale and leasebacks, regearing and restructuring of leases and lease liability portfolio transfers. We carefully assess each client’s individual circumstances and the implications to their cost base, financial statements, tax efficiency and financial covenant.
