Real Estate Securitisation

Due to the evolution of the funding mechanisms employed in the real estate sector, no real estate practice is complete without expertise in the structured capital markets, CMBS and RMBS spaces.

Although new issuance of CMBS and RMBS remains low by historical standards, particularly in Europe, sponsors, financials institutions and investors need to be able to access the best advice when looking at CMBS and RMBS structures and other structured capital markets lending (such as whole business securitisation for property companies and REITs).

Allen & Overy has a market-leading real estate securitisation practice, advising on transactions ranging from single trophy-assets structures through to loan portfolios, conduit lending, and, now more important than ever, working on deal restructurings. Our team leads on industry associations and remains committed to guiding our clients through the new regulatory landscape.
