Welcome to the sixth of our annual lists of the organisations making the biggest impact on European real estate finance.
Europe’s Top 40 Lenders 2019 is not a ranking. The list contains debt providers of various sizes and strategies that cannot simply be compared on a like-for-like basis. Rather, we considered which organisations have stood out in the parts of the market they aim to serve since we compiled our previous list in October 2018. These have been listed under the following categories: UK banks, German banks, other European banks, North American banks and non-bank lenders.
As well as a snapshot of who we see as the most active lenders, our top 40 provides insights into their strategies and details of their most important recent deals. In that respect, the list helps shine a light into a relatively opaque market.
