Capital markets team to be enhanced by the addition of corporate finance advisory services
Gerald Eve has launched a corporate finance platform in partnership with Peritus Corporate Finance in response to client demand for enhanced capital market services, including regulated advisory activities. This service will operate as a stand-alone platform, working closely with Gerald Eve’s capital markets and development teams.
The addition of this partnered initiative will provide Gerald Eve clients with access to a diverse range of best-in-class capital market solutions with enhanced access to equity, joint venture capital and a range of debt solutions.
Peritus Corporate Finance will offer independent advice across the full real estate capital stack, including senior debt, mezzanine, bridging and development finance as well as equity, drawing upon Peritus’ extensive network and established track record in the corporate finance arena. The team at Peritus has been working alongside Gerald Eve for a number of years, with the new venture being a natural progression for both parties.
Simon Prichard, Senior Partner at Gerald Eve said: “This is an exciting new service line for Gerald Eve, which reinforces our existing reputation for premium consultancy advice and gives us a platform from which to operate in the regulated corporate finance markets. It is indicative of the ongoing evolution of Gerald Eve and will be a valuable addition to the firm and to the capital markets team, in particular.”
John Rodgers, partner and head of capital markets at Gerald Eve, said: “In our role as advisors we are increasingly required to add value across all elements of a transaction. This new platform cements our position to offer the full spectrum of capital markets advisory services. With an established team of 25 Staff, the Peritus team will provide our clients with a depth of service across the corporate finance arena.”
Darren Baker, CEO of Peritus Corporate Finance, added: “Real estate finance is a strategic growth area for Peritus and this new platform enables us to offer a range of bespoke products and solutions to an enhanced client base, working alongside some of the best advisors in the business. We look forward to working with Gerald Eve and in expanding this exciting new service line.”
