Unifore secures agreement with Morgan Stanley to provide CRE loans in the Dutch market

October 04, 2017

Unifore, the Amsterdam based commercial real estate capital advisory company established in 2013, has today reached an agreement with Morgan Stanley, the leading global financial services firm, that will provide new lending capacity for the Dutch market. Morgan Stanley is a longstanding lender in the Dutch CRE market.

The agreement will enable Unifore and Morgan Stanley to provide borrowers across the Netherlands with flexible loan structures and LTVs. Unifore and Morgan Stanley will target loans across a wide variety of commercial real estate asset classes and with a minimum size of € 10 million, but also have the ability and capacity to provide funding for significantly larger transactions.

Commenting on the agreement Maarten Arnoldy of Unifore stated: “Since the inception of Unifore we have successfully helped many Dutch and German based real estate businesses in arranging debt financing. In addition we will now be able to provide borrowers with access to a new, creative and flexible source of capital. We believe that this offering fills a void in the availability of existing CRE debt financing sources. At the moment Morgan Stanley and Unifore are in the process of closing the first loans with an aggregate volume of almost € 100 million, and we are very positive about the outlook for new transactions.”

As Unifore continues to grow its business and establish itself as an enabler of alternative real estate finance, we are delighted to be working alongside a leading financial services firm of Morgan Stanley’s calibre. Morgan Stanley is well positioned to work with us in the expansion of our business, and we are pleased that Unifore will be able to originate and facilitate new transactions.”

“We are positive about the outlook for the Dutch CRE market,” added Marcel de Boom, Executive Director at Morgan Stanley. “We look forward to working closely with Unifore to provide funding that supports the growth of Dutch commercial real estate businesses.”
