Schroders goes deeper in private debt
May 10, 2018

Global investment firm Schroders is announcing that it has made a 20 percent equity investment in, and provided financing in connection with the recapitalization of, A10 Capital, a full-service commercial real estate (CRE) lending organization specializing in mid-market CRE loans, including bridge and permanent loans.

The investment is being made alongside an investment by Gemspring Capital, a middle market private equity firm based in Westport, Connecticut. Founded in 2007, A10 Capital is based in the United States with origination offices in key markets and principal offices in Boise, Idaho and Dallas, Texas. 

Concurrent with the investment, Schroders and A10 have entered into an agreement through which Schroders will benefit from A10's extensive origination network and servicing platform to access mid-market CRE loan opportunities for its clients. 

The agreement also provides A10 with the opportunity to significantly diversify its balance sheet funding model. Schroders notes that the two firms have a five-year history of working together and says this new relationship deepens its commitment to provide client capital to this important market segment.

The portfolio management process will be overseen by Schroders' New York-based securitized credit team, led by Michelle Russell-Dowe, Head of securitized credit with Jeff Williams, Fixed Income Fund Manager, serving as Lead Portfolio Manager for the initiative.
