Banks and Residual Stock Loans

By September 25, 2020 November 10th, 2020 No Comments

Often a loan from a major bank may seem the most attractive funding option, particularly for the low rate of interest.  However, we often hear about borrowers who have had negative experiences.

A common example is where banks have funded the construction of a property development project however do not extend funding for the residual stock.  From a credit perspective, we think that the risks should be comparatively lower with the property completed, demand demonstrated by sell-through and that it is a project the bank is familiar with.   

At Gemi, we fund 65% of the value of the residual stock to provide time for borrowers to complete an orderly sale process to maximise returns and/or to release equity to facilitate the borrower’s next development project.
