Leading real estate financing capabilities founded on close market relationships

"PIMCO Prime Real Estate is one of the leading, European, alternative senior debt provider backed by direct lending capabilities as well as local origination and loan asset management presence, and acting on a pan-European basis."

Roland Fuchs
Head of European Real Estate Finance

In Europe, our focus on prime has enabled us to build a resilient, diversified and high-quality real estate lending portfolio. Our award-winning, multi-functional teams work in partnership with borrowers, providing real estate expertise as well as financing.

We typically target long-term, fixed-rate maturities ranging from 7-20 years. In addition to senior loans, we have strategically increased our allocation to enhanced build-to-core and manage-to-core loans, particularly on future-oriented assets, to fulfil investor aims and reinforce our sustainability commitments. This approach is designed to enable us to consistently grow capital and deliver strong returns for our clients.

In the U.S., market dynamics and our clients’ interests have meant lending has proliferated in recent years. We seek to generate high quality yield across investment cycles, on loan terms ranging from 5-30 years.

New opportunities are emerging in U.S. commercial real estate lending as ‘18/7’ cities become increasingly attractive to clients, rivaling the traditional 24/7 cities. Our diversified portfolio offers exposure to core sectors across the top 50 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA).
