Mezzanine capital describes a hybrid form of equity and debt capital that is located in the capital structure of a project between the equity tranche and the debt tranche coming from the bank. Mezzanine financing thus offers investors the opportunity to minimise the use of equity in real estate investments and project developments. While investors have to use less equity capital and can operate several projects simultaneously through the use of mezzanine capital, attractive returns beyond the interest rate level attract mezzanine capital providers. Single family offices are increasingly acting as mezzanine capital providers. We present three in this article.
