Starwood European Real Estate Finance Limited: Investment Update
Starwood European Real Estate Finance Limited (the "Company" and, together with its subsidiaries, the "Group") is pleased to announce that on 12 November 2018 the Group closed a EUR19.5 million fixed rate whole loan secured by a mixed-use office and hotel property located in Madrid, Spain. The financing has been primarily provided in the form of an initial advance along with a smaller capex facility to support the borrower's value-enhancing, light capex initiatives. The loan term is 5 years, and the Group expects to earn an attractive risk-adjusted return in line with its stated investment strategy.
The Group has now invested in five Spanish loans with a total commitment of approximately EUR182 million, and alongside the UK and Ireland, Spain remains one of the Group's top target markets for further investment opportunities.
Following the investment, the Group has approximately £52 million drawings on its credit facilities net of cash.
