We benefit from a diverse investor base across leading pension funds, insurers and financial institutions

Our team has extensive lending experience in CRE markets, and invests in whole loans and junior loans across all asset classes including operating assets

Private Rented Sector Guarantee Scheme

In December 2014, and following a public procurement tender process, we were mandated as the delivery partner by the UK’s Department for Communities and Local Government (now the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government) in respect of its £3.5bn Private Rented Sector Guarantee Scheme

Under this mandate, we are responsible for the origination, underwriting, and on-going management of the loans within the scheme

Loans will be secured by purpose-built and professionally managed private rented developments, which are commenced after June 2013

Funding for these loans is provided by a government guaranteed bond issuance programme established and managed by Venn

Credit Advisory

We have developed a proprietary online platform (VeRA) for the management, analysis and valuation of asset backed finance to underpin our investment offering, whilst also making this technology available to third party credit managers

In July 2016, Venn was chosen by the Crown Commercial Service as one of the suppliers for its Framework Agreement to provide Corporate Finance Services across UK Govenment, in respect to financial assets. Further details can be found on the Cabinet Office website, or alternatively please contact us at moc.srentrap-nnevnull@scc

Among other clients, VeRA has been used by UK Asset Resolution (UKAR), owned by HM Treasury:

“UKAR has been pleased to work with Venn Partners on our £2+bn ABS portfolio over a 5 year period whilst we wound it down to ensure we maximised value for the UK taxpayer. Venn supported us in developing a clear framework for making portfolio management decisions and their team, using their VeRA platform, provided insightful on-going valuation, risk reporting and recommendations on each bond, across a range of asset classes. Venn has been a trusted long term partner in helping us achieve our mission.”  Ian Hares, CEO, UK Asset Resolution

As well as our core lending markets, focused on commercial and residential real estate, we have credit experience across a variety of ABS types, including RMBS, CMBS and CLOs
