Real Estate Capital: Henderson's debt debate highlights rapid rise of non-bank property lenders

Real Estate Capital summarise the 'European real etate debt: From crisis to a new model' debate that we hosted on 12 July 2012.

New non-bank lenders are proliferating and will restructure the way real estate debt is provided, according to speakers at a recent seminar hosted by Henderson Global Investors and moderated by Real Estate Capital.

Speaking at the European real estate debt: 'From crisis to a new model' event, held in London in July, Hans Vrensen, global head of research at DTZ noted: "We see a lot of volume coming out of non-bank lenders. It's happening much quicker than most people thought."

Vrensen estmated at least £50bn will come from these new sources over the next two years.

According to John Feeny, Henderson's head of real estate debt: "A menu is emerging, where investors have access to many different stratigies and returns, in some cases taking greater leverage risk, in other cases taking risk on a lower-quality asset base."
