A mezzanine loan ranks junior to the senior loan in the capital stack. Mezzanine finance allows the developer access to additional funding and reduces their equity requirement.

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.

Equity Finance

Up to 100% EQUITY

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.

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.
