U.S. Private Placement


Financial Adviser

Van Lanschot Kempen acted as Financial Adviser to Amvest in attracting its first U.S. Private Placement

Transaction highlights

  • Amvest Residential Core Fund (ARC Fund) successfully completed its first U.S. Private Placement transaction.
  • The transaction involves the issuance of €135 million worth of notes in the U.S. Private Placement market.
  • The euro-denominated notes are issued to a small group of high quality U.S. and Canadian institutional investors, with a maturity of 7 years and a fixed-rate coupon, reflecting ARC Fund’s implied investment grade credit profile.
  • This transaction helps the ARC Fund achieve long-term financing and further diversifies its funding structure.
  • In July 2022, Van Lanschot Kempen acted as Sole Financial Advisor to the ARC Fund in securing a €450 million unsecured, sustainability linked revolving credit facility, thereby establishing the U.S. Private Placement transaction as a logical next step.
  • Niclas von der Thüsen, Director Finance and Risk at Amvest: “We are pleased that the ARC Fund successfully raised financing in a new market. This transaction underlines the attractive portfolio of the ARC Fund and provides funding for future growth. The ARC Fund is well positioned to continue investing in the Dutch housing market, always with the goal of providing people with a good home.”
