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.
