CBRE Equity Placement is an independent placement agent to fund and asset managers looking to attract capital for an existing real estate vehicle or a new real estate strategy. Additionally, we trade equity stakes in unlisted real estate investments on behalf of investors via PropertyMatch or as portfolios.
CBRE Capital Advisors has the platform and infrastructure to advise both GPs (Managers) and LPs (Investors) on business cases and vehicle structures, matched by the ability to quickly and efficiently source capital and investment opportunities on a global, regional and local basis.
Full Integration Within CBRE
The Equity Placement team are fully integrated within CBRE, the leading commercial real estate services firm with a global reach, perspective and capability. This allows us to leverage expertise encompassing all aspects of real estate and draw upon a true depth of knowledge of underlying products and markets while supported by a research
Proven Track Record of Equity Placement
Through Primary Raises, Tap Issues, Recapitalisation, Secondary positions and JV/Co-investments, equity commitments have been sourced for over 60 vehicles since 2010.
Real Estate Dedicated Platform
We have a market leading track record for large scale equity placement and structuring, built upon our analytical expertise and a real estate dedicated platform developed within CBRE.
This provides the ability to evaluate, underwrite and clearly articulate the real estate fundamentals, ensuring vehicle structures are tailored to strike the desired balance between client objectives and market demands. This skill has become paramount in recent years as the markets rebalance and relative return remains difficult to assess on a global scale.
Experienced and Bespoke Team
We are an experienced senior team with commitment and drive that will establish a durable relationship, which goes beyond the raising of the capital to ensure continued alignment of interests.
Each project benefits from the bespoke merger of this team with the wider specific expertise available through the CBRE platform. As such, CBRE Equity Placement will work hand in hand with wider CBRE specialists (agency and professional) and the CBRE Research team to ensure these key messages are presented in the most coherent way.
