Capita Real Estate Finance appoints Niall Brown as director
Capita Real Estate Finance, part of Capita Asset Services, has appointed Niall Brown as its new director, as it seeks to continue to expand its expertise and support its growing client base.
Niall joins Capita as part of its strategy for continued growth. He has joined the business from Laxfield Capital, where he sourced financing opportunities for Laxfield’s exclusive origination mandates.
Prior to Laxfield Capital, Niall spent more than six years at Lloyds Bank, most recently as an associate director in the Institutional Corporate Real Estate team.
Niall’s role at Capita will be to use his knowledge and experience of the real estate and capital markets to source and deliver real estate finance for investors and developers.
The business assists clients in structuring, presenting and negotiating the best terms in the market, accessing its significant network of finance providers to deliver finance terms and offer a cradle-to-grave solution, right through to negotiating commercial aspects of all loan documentation.
I’ve been really impressed with the way that Capita Real Estate Finance has quickly established itself as a leading intermediary in the debt advisory market. I believe there is a huge opportunity to continue the growth in the platform as Capita is now uniquely placed to enable clients to establish strong relationships with lenders across Europe.
Director, Capita Real Estate Finance
Capita Real Estate Finance has delivered significant savings for clients through negotiating preferential terms with lenders. So far this year, the group has secured finance for assets as varied as an historic building overlooking the Mall, for which long term fixed rate financing was secured, and a 75% LTV loan secured against a pre-planning residential development site.
Since the business was formed in 2015 total transaction volume for clients has been €440 million on deals completed in the UK and Europe, which spans sectors including both investment and development of offices, hotels, leisure and residential.
