Nisus Finance To Invest Rs.500 Cr. In Stressed Real Estate Projects

To elaborate further Real estate-focused private equity fund Nisus Finance is planning to raise around Rs.700 crore from domestic investors and invest Rs.500 crore out of that in stressed realty assets over the next three years. To begin with, the company has also identified projects across Mumbai, Noida, Bengaluru and Pune. Nearly, $20-30 billion worth of real estate assets are under stress. These are largely good assets and we see them as a huge opportunity to provide finance and make good returns. According to a recent survey by consulting firm KPMG, at the end of 2017, real estate developers accounted for $20 billion worth of stressed bank loans. They will be raising Rs.700 crore from domestic investors. Out of this, around Rs 500 crore will be invested in distressed realty assets over the next three years. The company has identified three projects in Noida Extension, three in Mumbai – one each in Dadar, Goregaon and Andheri – and one each in Bengaluru and Pune.
