The highly structured and covenanted nature of transactions also affords lower default rates and higher recovery rates offering further downside protection to investors.
The Commercial Real Estate Debt team is currently comprised of four individuals with complementary experience across asset management and banking leveraging a 45-strong proprietary origination channel offered by the BNP Paribas Group.
