Standard Bank’s Real Estate Finance division successfully negotiated the refinancing of expiring debt facilities totalling ZAR1.25 billion. In addition, new facilities of ZAR1 billion were advanced to Growthpoint Properties Limited. Standard Bank was able to structure an innovative and competitively priced funding solution that met Growthpoint’s funding requirements whilst also securing a DCM mandate for the Bank. This DCM mandate was later successfully executed.
