£12.0m development finance

Published by Krios Capital Partners -


Krios Capital Partners have closed a £12.0m development finance facility on behalf of Zarwah Development, a UAE and UK based property development company.

The debt facility comprises £9.2m of senior debt sourced from Paragon Bank and £2.8m of junior debt sourced from two mezzanine lenders (including an overseas based lender).

Located in Croydon, 20 min away from London, the proposed residential project is an exclusive ground-up development which will entail 42 apartments (of which 24 affordable).

Guelane Mansour, managing director at Krios Capital Partners commented:

“We’re delighted to have been able to deliver the funding for our longstanding client, especially during these uncertain times. The transaction was a challenging one due to the nature of the site, cross-border deal structure and the involvement of multiple lenders (incl. an overseas based junior lender). This transaction couldn’t have happened without the support of Paragon Bank who went above and beyond to overcome all the challenges.”


  • 77% LTGDV

  • Combination of senior debt & mezzanine finance

  • Blended rate of 9.5% per annum

  • 30 months term
