Greystone Launches Preferred Equity Platform to Support Changing Capital Needs for Multifamily Loan Borrowers

With Higher Rate Environment Reducing Senior Loan Proceeds, Greystone’s Solution Will Help Complete the Capital Stack

NEW YORK, Oct. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greystone, a leading national commercial real estate finance company, has launched a preferred equity and joint venture advisory and production group, to be led by Matthew Zisler, Senior Managing Director.

Terms and requirements for preferred equity placed by Greystone varies depending on the senior loan product with which it is coupled.

“Our primary goal is to address and solve for borrowers’ pain points with their capital needs, and the growing amount of equity needed to close is a common concern in today’s market,” said Mr. Zisler. “With this complementary platform, we can provide our clients with the best in multifamily financing solutions while providing options to complete the capital stack.”

Mr. Zisler, who joined Greystone earlier in 2023, has over 20 years of experience in commercial real estate acquisitions, capital raising, equity investments, and structured financing.
