Two real estate capital markets advisors have formed an alliance to serve real estate investors across the US, the UK and the EU.
The new entity — Mission Brotherton — will provide real estate debt and equity brokerage to international real estate investors in the United States and Europe.
The Mission Brotherton platform will serve as an extension of the existing advisory practices Mission and Brotherton currently maintain.
Founded in 2002, Mission has experience securing debt and equity capital for real estate projects and advising on loan portfolio and real estate sales in markets across the US.
Brotherton is a debt and equity advisory business with knowledge and expertise of the real estate landscape in Europe and the United Kingdom.
By partnering with each other, Mission and Brotherton will create a finance platform that leverages the firms’ collective market knowledge and relationships in both Europe and the United States
“Most of our larger private equity, banking and investment clients have opportunistic loan and real estate investment and lending platforms in both Europe and the US. A number of them have advised us that Europe is underserved by high quality financing intermediaries,” said David Tobin, founder and principal of Mission Capital.
“After reviewing the marketplace, we saw the demand for cross-border real estate capital markets expertise, real estate debt and equity capital raising and loan sale advisory with “boots on the ground” so to speak. With Mission Brotherton, we will synergistically help each other enhance that expertise in our respective markets.”
Added Richard Fine, founder and principal of Brotherton: “The real estate industry is largely powered by relationships, and Mission Brotherton’s ability to tap into two of the strongest networks in the industry will provide great value to investors based in both the UK and the US.”
For Mission Capital, the venture is the latest in a line of strategic initiatives that have been rolled out recently. In 2015, it partnered in the creation of EquityMultiple, a pure-play commercial real estate crowdfunding platforms and expanded its loan and investment sales brokerage activity,.
