Maslow Capital buys £100m loan portfolio

Maslow Capital has completed the acquisition of a loan portfolio secured against a blend of land with planning, residential, purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) and mixed-use development schemes. This represents Maslow’s first participation in the secondary market with a further transaction currently under consideration.

In aggregate, the portfolio will see more than 438,000 sq. ft. of new residential, mixed-used and PBSA units delivered.  Assets are well located across regional markets in the UK and are in line with Maslow’s strategy of targeting key regional cities.

Demand for Maslow’s senior debt and stretch senior debt products have been growing and we have, to date, provided debt facilities with a collective GDV in excess of £1.6 billion, covering 4,900 new properties enabling the delivery of more than 3.2 million sq. ft. of new accommodation throughout England and Wales. Maslow’s ability to acquire this portfolio was made possible by the depth and flexibility of its balance sheet together with a team that possesses the necessary skills to assess a complex loan portfolio secured on part-built assets.

This acquisition represents an exciting opportunity for Maslow, enabling us to gain further exposure in target markets across the UK, reinforcing our capability across residential, mixed-use and the PBSA market, in which we see particular growth potential going forward. The purchase of an existing loan portfolio is a first for us and we hope to make further acquisitions of this nature in the future as we further scale our lending.

NEWS: 2018 kicking off with 4 deals, £74 million

Maslow is delighted to announce the completion of four exciting deals with a total of £74 million lent.

The four deals provide funding for new residential developments in London and Manchester, delivering more than 80 new apartments and new commercial space along with 211 student beds in Coventry, and 246 in Sheffield. In aggregate, the developments will deliver more than 195,000 sq. ft. of new accommodation in sought after locations.

Specifically, these loans will assist with the delivery of 18 new apartments and a new commercial unit at Halt Parade, London, NW9 arranged over six floors and the construction of 66 new flats which will be delivered in the Ancoats district of central Manchester, addressing continuing need in the city for well-located apartments.

In Coventry and Sheffield, the funding packages will see more than 450 new student beds brought to market in cities where university accommodation continues to be in high demand.  Both cities are growing as centres for education, and these new facilities, which will be located near main university campuses, will be completed in time for the 2018/19 academic year.

The deals represent a continuation of Maslow’s diversification of its exposure into different real estate market segments covering residential, mixed-use and purpose-built student accommodation across the UK.
