About Arno Capital
Arno Capital Investments is a leading finance company that provides diverse real estate project financing solutions in Israel. The company offers customized financing solutions for land acquisition, asset-swap, urban renewal and government-price-capped/discounted transactions and tenders.
The main financing solutions that the company offers are senior credit (a substitute for bank credit) for accompanying the construction process, mezzanine loans and credit against real estate collaterals.
Closed-end Complete Accompaniment that includes all Credit Components for Entrepreneurs
Arno Capital Investments started operating in late 2013, on the back of growing difficulties of small and medium real-estate entrepreneurs to receive credit from the banking system.
Similar to the customary financing model of the banking system, Arno Capital Investments provides closed-end financing, which includes capital completion, senior debt, policies and guarantees of contract of sale law. Currently, the company accompanies over 50 projects located throughout the country, from Nahariya to Beer Sheva. The company’s diverse portfolio consists of various projects, including TAMA 38/1
(Reinforcement of an existing building + additions) TAMA 38/2 (destruction and reconstruction), government-price-capped/discounted complexes and classic initiation.
Bank and Beyond
Arno Capital fully replaces banks alongside additional financial services and solutions.
The financing is personally tailored to every entrepreneur, as of complete accompaniment of the project, which includes an execution credit framework, contract of sale policies for apartment buyers, and up to completion of personal capital.
Arno sees the entrepreneur at the center and the company enables equity extraction during the project after the sales goals have been met. Developers who contract with Arno Capital benefit from an inhouse professional service experience, which includes personal accompaniment, including issuing of vouchers, opening bank accounts, legal services, etc. Arno Capital’s aim is to provide professional service, which is provided by a company that lives and breathes its projects, and understands the constraints and unexpected events that characterize the real estate field.
