Project Development Finance and Real Estate Advisory Services
Since 1995, Westwood Capital has been an innovator in the area of applying structured finance techniques to assist owners and developers of real estate assets. The firm’s real estate activities concentrate on the hospitality and gaming industries as well as other operating property uses such as self-storage, healthcare and specialty/franchise retail. Westwood’s value-added services also include sourcing and negotiating strategic equity and joint venture investments on behalf of its clients. The firm is perhaps best known for its commitment to the hotel and gaming sectors, where Westwood has been involved in transactions ranging in size from $50 million to more than $1 billion, from mega-million dollar multi-use gaming/hotel/retail properties on the strip in Las Vegas; to gaming and non-gaming resorts throughout the Caribbean; to gaming properties throughout Asia. Westwood appreciates that the strategic planning and execution of complex projects requires financial input from the earliest stages, and Westwood prides itself on being one of very few investment banking firms in the real estate arena willing to dedicate resources to multi-year assignments – going shoulder-to-shoulder with its clients, from beginning to end, in order to achieve success.
