NEWS: Qualitas ranks #1 in Australia – PERE RED 50

1 May 2024

Qualitas is thrilled to be in the #1 position in Australia in the PERE Real Estate Debt 50 (RED 50) 2024 for real estate debt capital raising!

The RED 50 features the 50 biggest capital raisers globally over the five years to the end of 2023 – with Qualitas not only ranked #1 in Australia, but also #2 in Asia Pacific and #14 globally. In a more challenging capital raising environment, our team has remained consistent and resilient to deliver strong results.

When asked why investors want to get into Australia real estate debt and what the prospects for the market are, our Group Managing Director and Co-Founder, Andrew Schwartz expressed: “Tailwinds are provided by the continued narrowing of the focus of traditional financiers, providing ongoing demand for the alternative sector.”

“For global investors, the Australian housing market thematic is relatively attractive on a risk-adjusted basis for several reasons. Supply is limited and takes time, so the risk of excess supply and imbalance is low.”

The RED 50 ranking and recent recognition as Firm of the Year: Australia in the 2023 PERE Awards, are a testament to the team’s ability to successfully attract and deploy capital for real estate private credit opportunities.
