Mezzanine Finance

Ranking junior to the senior loan, Mezzanine Finance is effectively a 2nd charge loan which allows developers to enhance their borrowings and reduce their equity requirement.

A Mezzanine Finance provider has higher risk due to their junior ranking. Because of this, they will charge a higher coupon, typically between 15% - 25% per annum. Although this finance is more expensive, when used alongside a well priced senior facility, the blended rate between Senior & Junior can often be more competitive than that of a Stretch Senior Development Loan.

Mezzanine finance also allows developers to continue working with their preferred funders who possibly offer less leverage, and then “top up” this facility via a Mezzanine Loan.

That being said, there are a handful of options available for those seeking smaller loans or with less experience, providing the development project is profitable and the networth of the sponsor is reasonable.
