Opinion Pieces in Development Finance Today


Mackenzie Byrne contributed two opinion pieces to Development Finance Today in the latter part of 2021.

In September, Director of Development and Structured Finance, Dominic O’Leary, contributed an article on sustainability in the property development industry. Dominic argued that building more sustainably could have a hugely positive impact on the UK’s carbon emissions and announced that Mackenzie Byrne would be reducing our fees by 25% for green development projects.

And in October, Director of Communications and Sustainable Finance, Jake O’Leary, contributed a piece on how banks and investors can benefit from lending for sustainable developments. Jake argued that lenders can protect their brands and gain a competitive advantage by creating green finance products with discounted rates and/or fees. You can read Jake’s article here.
