Mesirow Financial's Credit Tenant Lease (CTL) Finance professionals arrange and structure long-term financing at the most competitive available terms for real estate owners and developers.
Credit Tenant Lease Finance Overview
Credit Tenant Lease (CTL) financing is a very effective alternative for real estate assets supported by tenants with investment-grade credit (S7P BBB- or better). CTL financing offers borrowers and tenants the advantage of long-term financing at a favorable fixed rate. CTL financing has been a successful source of real estate financing for decades, and has become increasingly more common given the current limitations of traditional real estate finance markets. Estimates place the CTL finance market size in excess of $5 billion per year.
Our CTL Finance team works collaboratively with our fixed income sales and trading, real estate and public finance teams in order to structure CTL loans according to terms most favorable for our clients. We work directly with our bond traders and are able to provide clients with real-time access to market pricing, offering very competitive rates and faster execution. We have direct access to the firm's real estate consulting and public finance teams, leveraging their expertise in development, ownership and lease negotiation in order to help customize the loan to meet the client's best interests. The breadth of Mesirow Financial's platform helps enable our clients' transactions to be best positioned for success.
