Report from Asia: Nonbank lending and investment opportunities in Australia

Institutional Real Estate, Inc. Podcast show

Summary: The Australian real estate debt sector is undergoing substantial change and creating new opportunities for both institutional and high-net-worth individuals. Australian banks are going through a significant withdrawal from commercial real estate loans, and that has created an opening for nonbank private equity lenders, such as Blackstone, KKR and many others. What kinds of opportunities is this creating for investors? How attractive are returns from nonbank lenders? To discuss the turn of events we are joined by Peter Mitchell, director of Elysium Capital, and a consultant with Emerge Capital on offshore investment into real estate debt and equity products in Australia. He is also ex-CEO of the Asian Public Real Estate Association. (05/2019)
