Neil has been in property finance for over 11-years, with 10-years in senior relationship roles with a major domestic bank. Neil acted as the relationship executive for real estate funds (listed and unlisted), High Net Worth syndicates and some of Australia’s largest family offices with property exposures on both investment and construction facilities. Outside of vanilla senior debt, he has experience with complex structures as lead arranger on syndicated facilities, Initial Public Offerings, and introduced bank-sourced preferred equity on a work-out basis. Most importantly, Neil guided clients through periods of immense market-driven, capital restrictions and regulatory-led changes which had material impacts to funding appetite.
Since co-founding Catalyst Debt Capital, Neil has worked with family offices, private developers & investors, listed overseas & domestic counterparties and high net worth syndicates.
His primary focus is sourcing capital for client’s projects and investments – including private loans, transitional funding, senior, stretch senior, mezzanine finance, preferred equity and arranging joint venture partnerships. Neil provides end to end servicing for his clients outside of raising capital and includes sourcing industry experts and consultants for the benefit of the project. His experience and credibility in the market provides clients with access to several quality capital sources.
