Unlock Opportunity by leveraging our Capabilities

Efficient and effective structuring and sourcing of capital, particularly for large and complex projects or property portfolios, necessitates experience.
Leveraging our significant property finance experience, in both construction and investment, we advise our clients on structured finance arrangements covering the entire capital stack, including Senior Debt, Mezzanine Debt, Preferential Equity and Joint Venture Equity. 

STAC Capital and our Directors have been the lead-arrangers or financiers on countless property projects and portfolios, ranging from small townhouses, through portfolios of specialised-use assets, to $100m high-density multi-storey developments. 

The relationships and knowledge that STAC Capital have in the property development industry has proven a valuable asset to DevCorp. An approachable and highly professional team that are quick to find a tailored solution and open the right doors.

A Strategic Partnership with STAC Capital

  • While the structuring and arrangement of finance is very much core to our business, our approach is different to that of typical finance brokers.

  • Our Directors are actively involved with the owners, key management and external advisors of each of our clients.

  • We are not single deal focused, rather we value long-term mutually-beneficial relationships with our clients.

  • We are fiercely independent and loyal to our clients - while we have strong relationships with a large number of lenders and investors, we do not have any affiliations or attachments to any in particular.

  • We understand the true meaning of strategy and therefore take the time to clearly understand all the factors that make up our clients' strategy.

  • We are transparent with our pricing and align this with the interests of our clients.

Your full financial situation will need to be reviewed prior to acceptance of any offer or product.

Property Finance Advice

Whilst we do act in a brokerage capacity for our clients, part of our differentiation from finance brokers is in providing bespoke advisory services to select property developer for property development finance and commercial property investor clients. 

The scope of our property finance advisory services can be broad, typically agreed based upon the needs of our clients, our capabilities and experience, as well that of their existing professional advisors and consultants. Some examples of our property finance services include (but are not limited to):

  • Joint Venture Structuring - working together with clients and relevant lawyers to consider risks and requirements, to ensure that the proposed structure will fit with the likely requirements of financiers and/or investors.

  • Project Feasibility - assisting to build, or critically analyse, single- or multi-stage project feasibilities, particularly including the quantum and timing of the various layers of the capital stack.

  • Project Team - leveraging our broad range of relationships, identifying and selecting necessary professionals and consultants commensurate with the nature and size of the project, such as project/development managers, town planners, architects, valuers, quantity surveyors, real estate agents, lawyers, accountants etc.

  • Distressed Work-Outs - review and assessment of distressed positions/assets, formulation of work-out strategies together with clients and relevant professionals (such as lawyers, insolvency practitioners, property experts, real estate agents, construction professionals etc), negotiation with existing and/or potential incoming lenders/banks.

If you require some form of assistance with your property finance in relation to your portfolio or projects, contact us so that we can discuss whether we are suitably positioned to assist. STAC Capital also provides advisory services for Private Banking and Business Finance.
