Funding Europe’s top sponsors
Ardian Real Assets Debt invests alongside banks and other lenders, notably providing senior structured debt for Europe’s leading Real Estate funds. The team gets implied early in the due diligence process and is actively involved in structuring and negotiating facilities, drawing on its experience in arranging debt for Ardian Real Estate. Ardian’s intention is to build a well-diversified portfolio of projects spread across the major Eurozone economies and spanning office, residential and specialist assets in retail, hospitality, healthcare and logistics.
Ambitious ESG targets
ESG is at the heart of the Real Assets Debt strategy: it invests in projects designed to create modern, energy-efficient buildings. The fund is registered under Article 8 of the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and is fully supported by Ardian’s team of sustainability specialists. On completion, all projects will meet or exceed a benchmark score on Ardian’s Real Sustain ESG assessment system, and all will target the highest levels of environmental certification, such as BREEAM. The team places special emphasis on climate related KPIs.
The power of Ardian’s platform
Real Estate Debt is Ardian’s newest activity, but it is built on a tried and tested platform that already supports multi-local investment teams running well over $141 billion of assets. Ardian’s Real Estate teams in Paris, Frankfurt, Milan and Madrid, along with our extended network, give access to high-quality deal flow, while the company’s well-resourced teams of finance, sustainability, legal, tax and compliance professionals provide strong support for the investment team and LPs. This allows the team to combine agility with a robust operational framework.
