As Western Canada’s premier real estate advisory firm, we provide different financing solutions across a broad spectrum of asset classes in real estate. Our lending services range from prime commercial lending to detailed structured financing including debt and equity capital. Aultrust’s utmost objective is to align financial solutions with your bottom line and create value for all entities involved.
Aultrust relies on its number of years of experience to develop structured debt solutions for real estate clients. We combine commercial lending with different sources of capital, including senior debt, subordinated debt, and equity, to provide the most efficient cost of capital structure for our clients. Each source of capital has its benefits and risks and it is in our highest interest to optimize the use of leverage.
We provide structured finance planning for the following types of properties:
In a volatile and unpredictable market, investors seek to de-risk portfolios by moving into cash. As higher risk of inflation and lower rates of interest threatens the purchasing power of cash, many investors may choose to hedge the inflation risk through exposure to Real Estate. Cash hinders investors’ ability to generate attractive returns or to capture income. Owning physical Real Estate is also challenging for many who are passive investors.
Aultrust’s actively managed Real Estate funds offer effective hedge, consistent income, and upside potential through an innovative structure built on solid experience and local industry knowledge.
Aultrust proactively assists its clients to identify profitable investment opportunities. The firm’s long-standing relationship with property owners, financial institutions and investment sales brokers, gives its clients access to off-market or lightly marketed investment opportunities. Passive investment opportunities brought to Aultrust by leading local operators requiring joint venture equity are thoroughly studied and offered to the firm’s investor client base.
Aultrust Capital prides itself on its entrepreneurial spirit and efficiency to assist throughout the entire process of the deal, including sourcing investment opportunities, bringing qualified local operations, and raising the complete capital needed from debt to sponsor equity.
