Mezzanine & equity
finance for UK property developers
The long established Mezzanine & Equity specialists
MEZZANINE & EQUITY INVESTMENTS
Mezzanine finance is a 2nd charge loan which provides additional debt on a development project and is typically used by developers on day one towards the site acquisition.
What is Equity Finance?
Why Use Equity Finance?
Iron Bridge Finance’s equity finance can provide up to 100% of all development costs (acquisition and build). As an Iron Bridge Equity Partner, a developer reduces their funding contribution and gains access to Iron Bridge’s unrivaled in-house expertise.
Using an Iron Bridge Equity Loan allows a developer to significantly reduce their equity
contribution. Our equity finance can be structured through loan agreements or joint ventures.

Origination Manager Adam Brews
Mezzanine funding is important because we bridge the gap between what a senior lender offers and the remaining costs required to fully fund a project. By using mezzanine and equity funding, developers can reduce their equity funding, spread their own personal equity further and undertake more projects.
