We source funding in both equity and mezzanine lending for small- and large-scale projects. We’re active in financing ground-up development, as well as purchase transactions and refinancing. In addition, our Capital Markets Group provides sophisticated structured finance solutions for both our owner and occupier clients. Specifically, our occupancy scenario recommendations can be integrated with our Capital Markets group to overlay tailored financial structuring alternatives on top of the recommended scenario(s). Capital Markets can advise on structure and execute a wide range of financing options for Charles Dunn Company’s corporate clients. The group works closely with our clients to determine where a particular transaction fits within the client’s overall operational and financial strategy and exactly what the client is looking to achieve via the transaction. Consequently, Charles Dunn Company devises and executes a transaction optimized in three dimensions— accounting, tax, and economics—which fits the clients’ overall objectives.
