Whitefield International Investment's CEO, Mike Harling, is 'feeling more positive by the week as I see an increasing volume and range of projects looking for funding. Even though 2020 and the start of 2021 have been busy enough despite the continued Covid-induced uncertainty there is now a noticeable difference in the quality of projects seeking finance.'

The investment division of Whitefield International has had a strong start to 2021 arranging finance for the whole suite of real estate projects, both development and standing assets. 'Europe has been expecially hot for us in Germany and Spain, particularly the refinancing/sale of existing residential and office assets, as well as identifying capital for new greenfield developments. Interestingly, we have also been working for the first time with sheltered accommodation and student housing providers in their search for additional capital to meet ever growing demand.' 

Geographic areas of growing activity for the group have included Florida, the Nordic markets, the Middle East and Africa. Whereas, in terms of sectors, as well as real estate, Whitefield International has continued to work on a small number of renewable energy and infrastructure projects and providing funding solutions for fast growing tech companies. 

'We continue to build on our long established networks across the world and these trusted relationships are the bedrock of our business and enable us to seize opportunities and act promptly in matching projects to funders', commented Mike.
