Halkin Investments Middle East Limited is happy to announce the successful closure of large debt transactions. The transactions involved securing refinancing for a residential apartment complex located centrally in London.
This transaction posed several issues from the onset. Firstly, The UK Economy has faced tough challenges in the last six to eight months such as political trials, soaring interest rates & a growing cost of living. Moreover, the overall impact of the pandemic on the real estate has resulted in making such a transaction very complex. Banks have increased their scrutiny and remain cautious when dispensing liquidity.
Against the odds and challenges, Halkin has proved successful. The firm was able to deliver over all 65% LTV on the asset valued approx at valuation more than GBP 140 mln.
Such transactions illustrate Halkin’s resourcefulness & commitment in achieving bottom line results which suites the client’s need.
The staff and management of Halkin Investments Middle East Limited are deeply saddened to learn about the demise of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Her Majesty The Queen & the Royal Family on this sad occasion. They are in our thoughts & prayers.

APRIL 2020 - Milestone
Tuesday 7th April 2020 marks a milestone. Phase one where 285 families in remote parts of Pakistan received a non-perishable food package which should sustain a family for up to 8 weeks. Phase two will be ready shortly and we hope this effort will reach out to over 500 families.
MARCH 2020 - Food packages in the time of need
The firm is very conscious of the impact that COVID-19 will have on those in remote and less developed parts of the world.
We have previously supported a charity which is focusing on Education and Sustainability for the underprivileged people in Pakistan and in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been working with them on initiatives where we can support and have an impact at a human level to aid in hard times.
We have devised a plan together to prepare and distribute non perishable food packages to a minimum of 500 deserving families in Pakistan - based upon an average of 5 members per family. These food packages will include items which should sustain a family for 6-8 weeks and will help tackle hunger and hardship in light of the Coronavirus as local government restrictions are hampering people to provide for their families.
As a firm, we give a heart felt thanks to all those on the front line tackling the virus across the globe.
