Origin Capital is a fully owned subsidiary of LeBruin, a leading Irish corporate finance and debt advisory firm. Founded in 2008, LeBruin specialises in raising money for clients both locally and internationally.
LeBruin has raised over €10bn on behalf of clients, and has funded several high profile projects including the refinancing of Jervis Street Shopping Centre and The Montrose Hotel.
In 2015, LeBruin utilised its significant market expertise to launch Origin Capital, a new provider of senior debt commercial property finance in the Irish market.
Why was Origin Capital established?
Origin Capital was established to facilitate the growing demand for Commercial Real Estate (CRE) investment funding and refinancing in Ireland. As the Irish market recovers, there is a growing need for many borrowers to refinance debt from NAMA, loan book purchasers and other financial institutions.
Currently, there are a limited number of funding options available within the CRE investment market, largely dominated by mainstream financial institutions. Origin Capital aims to provide a genuine alternative to these existing options, with a flexible approach to lending grounded in commercial common sense.
What types of business activity do we engage in?
Origin Capital funds senior debt transactions in excess of €3m. In order to focus on providing the best offering within this sector, we do not currently provide funding for development transactions.
Our clients are professional property investors who are seeking attractive investment funding options and the ability to work closely with decision makers who have strong market knowledge and a commitment to providing exceptional service.
Origin Capital typically considers projects within the following investment parameters:
Senior debt funding for Commercial Real Estate transactions in excess of €3m
5 year term
Lending to companies only, no personal recourse lending
Commercial and residential investment sectors
Opening LTV of up to 85%
