Commercial Real Estate
Financing commercial real estate is a global business. However, each transaction is unique because of factors such as the local environment, individual property characteristics and ever-changing market conditions. This requires the right combination of skills and experience for successful management.
The experience of our CRE team goes far beyond the management of performing, standard loans. In stress situations, - borrower / tenant default, market deterioration, etc. - for FMS-WM we provide the specialist advice that can help avoid losses. Our broad knowledge of markets and debt structures equips us to add value by developing tailor-made strategies for the best possible outcomes.
In today's dynamic economy it is important to have a partner with diverse experience and a global reach. Our knowledge of fixed income markets and broad range of sector expertise allows us to perform under even the most challenging situations to achieve the best possible outcome. Our strategic focus includes analyzing, balancing and monitoring both credit and market risks, recommending and executing value enhancing strategies, complex restructurings and borrower negotiations and the ongoing maintenance and reporting of loan, bond and derivative portfolios.
Infrastructure & Asset Finance
The management of finance for infrastructure assets requires specialised knowledge. Transactions typically have long tenors, often more than 25 years. The assets themselves can be complex - power stations, or telecoms infrastructure, for example. The intricacy of the contracts adds another layer of complexity to these transactions. Our Infrastructure Finance team assesses all new and relevant information, understands the implications, identifies risk issues, and formulates the appropriate response.
In Asset Finance transactions, the assets generate the income and act as security for lenders (for example: aircraft, ships, rolling stock, shipping containers). Our deep understanding of cash flows and factors driving demand and pricing makes the difference between full recovery and a loss on an investment where a transaction encounters problems.
