What We Do
Meridian’s clients benefit from unmatched access to lenders, exclusive pricing, and deep insights Meridian’s comprehensive platform delivers. A clear advantage is gained by maintaining close and constant communication with lending market participants and leveraging Meridian’s position as the leading finance intermediary for multifamily properties in the U.S.
Clients know when they bring a debt assignment to Meridian it will be handled by experts who bring a proven track record across a wide variety of financing types, including acquisition, construction, mezzanine, bridge, and permanent, as well as accounts receivables financing.
Meridian’s exceptional vantage point in the equity capital markets allows its team to work with clients to capitalize or recapitalize multifamily assets. That includes identifying well-suited equity partners and tailoring the most efficient structure for each assignment.
Meridian’s business was built on working with top-tier, long-term ownership. No other intermediary has the depth of experience or the vast lender relationships that Meridian enjoys in arranging permanent financing. By serving as the de facto origination arm for many of America’s most active balance sheet lenders, Meridian can offer unique programs and preferred terms for our clients.
Meridian represents many of the most active investors and developers in the United States, and over our 30-year history has arranged financing for some of the largest property acquisitions, including significant single assets as well as vast portfolios in multiple states. Where certainty of execution is tantamount, our clients rely on us to obtain the proceeds and terms required for mission-critical property purchases.
Meridian has arranged construction financing for a broad array of property types across the United States. Our experts analyze the project’s stage of development, expected construction period, assumptions and projections to tailor financing to meet each developer’s specific needs, time frame, and business plan.
By acting as an advisor, Meridian fully understands the structure and value of each asset and therefore can advise clients on complex capital stacks, partner buyouts and sales or recapitalizations of partial interests.
Meridian advisors appreciate that real estate opportunities often require bridge financing to facilitate a quick closing or to capitalize on a short-term market fluctuation. We access interim financing solutions in accordance with a client’s business plan and stay closely engaged until the permanent financing stage.
Meridian knows the value-add marketplace and has raised debt capital for many transformative repositioning projects at properties across the U.S. Our intimate knowledge of the redevelopment process allows us to negotiate flexible financing that aligns with each project’s timeline and budget.
Meridian’s structured finance team has extensive experience in the negotiation of mezzanine financing for a broad range of property types. Our advisors work with clients, senior and mezzanine lenders to properly structure subordinate debt to support each project based on its individual merits.
Meridian’s broad network of equity sources stems from 30 years of acting as a trusted advisor to many of the most prominent real estate investors across the country. Through these unique connections, Meridian is able to raise equity quickly by understanding how each party operates, their return hurdles and where they are best matched with sponsors.
