Our Capabilities

Banner provides real estate finance solutions across the capital spectrum in the form of senior debt, “stretch” senior and equity participation facilities to experienced, privately owned real estate groups within the Australian market.

We typically assist funding of medium and high-density townhouse and apartment development projects, land sub-divisions, commercial, industrial and retail assets through to completion.

We also provide senior debt and equity participation for strategic site acquisitions as a forerunner to development finance.

Banner strives to deliver attractive risk adjusted returns for investors while meeting the commercial needs of our project partners.

With the above in mind, Banner typically targets provision of facilities ranging between $10m - $100m+ on any one transaction, where they meet our strict asset selection criteria.
