With a lower risk profile than equities, this sector is highly sought after by our institutional, overseas and sophisticated private investor clients.
How we operate
We focus on opportunities that exhibit the key attributes of commercial property success: location, condition, functionality, tenure and demand.
We present outstanding investment opportunities to our clients by using our extensive experience, intimate market knowledge and network of relationships to identify properties that are unique, relatively mispriced, or attractively valued.
We have a strong track record of identifying, refurbishing and repositioning commercial property assets that require more creative and active asset management. For example, core assets selling in distressed markets, or assets with shorter lease profiles, may be less appealing to traditional core buyers. However, with time and active asset management we can often return such assets to core status quickly.
Our due diligence
There’s no substitute for selective and disciplined stock selection. That’s why we always “pull a deal apart and put it back together” to ensure each element of price, return and risk meets the strict investment criteria we apply to drive the best results for our clients.
The Australian corporate and property lending market, historically dominated by local commercial banks, has been impacted by regulatory changes restricting bank funding to a range of asset owners and businesses with high quality projects and ventures. This has been particularly acute for small and medium size enterprises, and has created an opportunity for non-bank lenders to debt finance a range of fixed assets and operating businesses, and generate reliable returns secured against attractive collateral packages.
The Realside team has built a deep knowledge and experience in various types of debt financings over multiple economic cycles, drawing on its complimentary activities across property, corporate finance and private equity.
Our network of industry relationships and market participants including institutional co-investors, developers, entrepreneurs and advisors gives us access to a consistent pipeline of quality opportunities. Our disciplined investment process is focussed on financial underwriting, securing strong downside protection and identifying a range of exit strategies for each borrower. This has underpinned our track record of positive overall returns, with nil capital losses on any one investment.
In some investment opportunities where growth outlook or lifecycle stage presents attractive upside potential, we can complement our debt financing with a small equity-linked exposure to optimise the overall risk / return of the investment.
