The Santon Group's Mezzanine Funding

Private Equity

Whilst in the past The Santon Group has received private equity for a number of the transactions it has undertaken, going forward we are also keen to be a provider of equity or mezzanine finance, particularly on property related transactions. We appreciate that funding markets are currently difficult and that sometimes where a transaction is inherently profitable an additional equity source can unlock a deal where there is a funding gap or short term cash flow difficulties. Should you be interested in private equity or receiving mezzanine finance please contact Humphrey Kelsey (hkelsey@thesantongroup.com) or Bim Sandhu (bsandhu@thesantongroup.com).
