What the client says

“From a developer perspective it allowed us to access locked equity on order to fund our next project. The well-structured deal, which was circa a few million dollars, was not readily available from banks and DFP offered a viable solution.
“Preferred equity is certainly a solution that we will use again to unlock the funds we need to support future growth,” Nicholas Smedley
