Carpe Diem Property have Facilitated an Equity Raise of £2m Equity Funding for a C2 Assisted Living Developer. 

  • CDP are principal developers and we raise equity for our own projects, JV partners and new clients typically between £200k – £5m equity per project.
  • This now takes our finance raises to £30m in the past year and these schemes will deliver over 200 new homes with a GDV of over £170m.
  • In 2020 we want to add to the £30m we have raised in the past 12 months for our own, JV partner and new clients projects.
  • Typical schemes are in the SE, 3-100 units, with and without planning for: residential, care home, assisted living, student, PRS & mixed use / commercial developments.
  • Developers with strong track records and >10% equity to invest in their schemes receive the optimal finance, but please don’t take our word for it.
