Excellion Capital appoints ex-AXA and UBS MD Anthony Shayle
Excellion Capital, the London-based real estate finance firm, has appointed ex-AXA and UBS MD Anthony Shayle as director – real estate to grow its debt advisory business.
Shayle brings decades of institutional experience in the real estate industry, having most recently served as head of asset management at Legal & General Investment Management.
He will focus on assisting borrowers to refinance or restructure existing debts, a market demand that has increased due to higher interest rates and tighter lending criteria from lenders.
Shayle’s appointment follows Excellion Capital’s successful completion of several flagship transactions across UK real estate in the past year, including debt financing for Hotel AMANO Covent Garden and Red Oak Taverns.
Robert Stafler, co-founder & CEO, Excellion Capital, said: “Anthony’s appointment is nothing short of a coup: he joins with a pristine institutional background and deep experience of the highest pedigree.
“More and more of our clients need help to refinance existing debts and seek our assistance.
“Anthony’s multi-decade experience as a lender in UK Real Estate will be invaluable in this regard, so I am very excited to welcome him to the top-notch team led by Ashley.”
Shayle added: “I’m delighted to be joining Excellion, a unique boutique of highly skilled individuals with an outstanding track record and a strong moral compass; a firm that punches well above its weight.
“The market continues to pose difficult questions for borrowers, hence the need for skill and creativity in refinancing is pressing. I look forward to being part of this remarkable team, to help our clients navigate the current climate, achieve sustainable debts and create value.”
Ashley Marks, MD & head of real estate, Excellion Capital, concluded: “I first worked with Anthony in 2005 and I’m excited he joins our team today.
“Anthony comes to us at a critical time: existing clients already enjoy a 1st class service of value-adding property debt advisory, but the demand for our services keeps growing. Anthony’s decades of experience will help us meet this demand and grow.”
