COMPANY PHILOSOPHY    

  • Over the years we have evolved into a specialist Project Finance and Property Advisory company from experience in the field as developers, lenders & senior bankers with construction finance expertise.
  • ACMF teams up with a Mortgage Fund, an investor and our own funds to structure a complete finance facility for projects.
  • Our strength is to make up the total budget required to fund a project. Anyone can fund 50-65% LVR however after valuation, QS & credit requirements typically the average development may require 5% to 10% additional LVR top-up. This is where ACMF stands out.
  • A loan starting at a low LVR may work out if the Banks credit team believe the borrowers cost and time parameters are accurate, however a lot of the time there is under allowance for time delays and cost contingencies as required by a Bank credit team. 
  • Many developers tend to be highly leveraged to make their capital work harder and therefore a structured facility allows a greater return on equity.
  • The Banks' requirements today are typically inflexible whereas we customise the loan to suit the client relative to the loan dynamics.
  • As a result of our experience, we are often taken on as a project advisor from the inception primarily focusing on feasibility, finance structuring and profitability analysis.
