Asset Facilitation for Structured and Syndicated Financing
Structured Real Estate
We have provided our services to support the structuring of sizable bilateral and syndicated financing such as the dual currency murabaha financing facility (USD + EUR) for a newly formed state owned participation bank in Turkey lead managed by a major gulf based financial institution. We have assisted syndicated transactions arranged for numerous other Turkish participation banks.
We were also involved in the structuring of syndicated financings for large corporates and government entities in the MENA region, Central & South East Asia and Turkey. These include a US$500mn syndicated facility arranged by a major Kuwaiti based financial institution with syndicate participants located globally, for a government owned petrochemical company.
We have also supported a syndicated murabaha facility lead managed by a major Gulf based Islamic financial institution in the MENA region to the tune of USD320mn and a three year tenor.
We have been mandated as commodity facilitator for a number of syndicated financings including those arranged on behalf of Islamic banks. In one instance we assisted the conclusion of the client bank’s third successful syndicated murabaha facility which was made available in dual currency tranches with 32 participants from 16 countries.
We assisted a UK-based Sharia’a compliant investment bank with its first significant UK real estate transaction. This was for the acquisition of Procter & Gamble’s UK headquarters and we have continued to work with the bank through the significant expansion of its UK real estate portfolio. Subsequent deals include the acquisition of several student accommodation properties, a major UK corporation’s regional headquarters in Leeds and a core manufacturing and logistics facility.
We assisted the investment consortium of Islamic and conventional financial institutions with the unique Sharia’a compliant financing of the 72- storey Shard of Glass project in the City of London.
Structured Corporate Financings
We worked with and provided commodity facilitation services to an Islamic bank in Asia, which acted in the capacity of Investment Agent for a commodity Murabaha facility exceeding USD$500mn extended to a major Asian corporate.
We assisted International Finance Corporation, as commodity facilitator, in providing Sharia’a compliant financing to corporates based in Saudi Arabia. International Finance Corporation is a member of the World Bank Group focused on the private sector in developing countries.
We have originated supply of physical assets in support of numerous structured and syndicated financing transactions in recent years.
We are very active in assisting Sharia’a compliant UK based institutions and funds through provision of trade execution services and structuring support in arrangements related to their direct investment in real estate. This has also been extended to GCC based institutions in arranging financing for acquisitions of property in the UK, Europe and the US.
In August 2012 we provided commodity facilitation services to a syndicated Murabaha facility secured by a Real Estate Investment Trust based in Turkey. The facility was lead arranged by a GCC based Islamic Bank and involved participation from other GCC based banks, both Islamic and conventional.
We were delighted to be named as “Best Structuring Intermediary in Islamic Real Estate” at the IREF ME Awards 2010.
