Lucent Capital launched to provide real estate capital services
A team of real estate finance specialists has formed Lucent Capital to create capital solutions for the real estate environment.
Lucent Capital’s management team has arranged and structured more than USD4bn of real estate capital for owners, investors and developers in the last five years.
In addition, they marketed more than USD1bn in loan sales in 2009 throughout the US and Mexico.
“Our primary focus will be on two business lines, loan sale advisory and equity and debt placement, unlike many firms that specialise in just one area. With our broad experience and relationships we have the ability to connect the right capital with the right opportunity, which is a strong advantage for our clients,” says Shlomi Ronen, managing director.
Lucent Capital’s executives have worked with owners, investors and developers to arrange and structure debt and equity financing for commercial real estate.
“We are at the forefront of capital market trends with access to traditional and non-traditional capital across the globe to finance transactions in the US and Mexico,” says Farzin Emrani, managing director. “We strategically match clients with capital partners that share similar investment goals and operating philosophies.”
Lucent Capital manages loan sales on behalf of a variety of institutional owners including banks, pension funds, insurance companies and investment banks. Lucent Capital also has a substantial database of qualified investors to market loan sale opportunities.
The firm currently has affiliate offices in Mexico City and London and is expanding its network to select US and international markets.
