Maslow Capital and M&G announce agreement to unlock financing for UK real estate developers
Specialist real estate development finance provider Maslow Capital and M&G Investments, a leading international asset manager, today announce a funding agreement that will provide loans to UK real estate developers.
Under the terms of the partnership, funds managed by M&G will benefit from Maslow’s specialist construction underwriting knowledge and UK wide relationships by investing in loans managed and originated by the Maslow platform. Consistent with existing portfolios run by Maslow, the lending strategy will focus on the delivery of residential, Purpose Built Student Accommodation, Build-to-Rent, Private Residential Sector, co-living, retirement living and aparthotel developments.
Maslow Capital’s long-standing and continuing partnership with Sixth Street, a leading global investment business with over $47 billion in assets under management, coupled with the new M&G mandate will enable Maslow to build even further on its strong foundations and its mission to deliver much needed housing across the UK.

Maslow Capital has a strong track record of working with developers and this agreement should allow our pension fund and institutional clients to benefit from their expertise by way of attractive returns.”William Nicoll, CIO, Private ＆ Alternative Assets, M&G
“This transaction is a significant milestone on the Maslow journey and adds further depth to our funding capabilities.
