Bond Issuance in Israel

Raising capital is becoming increasingly difficult as interest rates and property prices rise quicker than wages. With JVs getting more complex and organisational risk rising, corporate Real Estate investors are looking for new ways to raise the capital required for their projects. Enter Israel.  

BDO Israel has been working with US-based real estate companies to help them diversify their funding by raising capital through the Israeli capital markets.  By issuing and floating an unsecured corporate bond, developers and property owners are able to refinance, buy out partners, and source equity for new deals.

Bond issuance is a highly desired path that international companies seek within the local Israeli marketplace, and BDO’s experts are extremely capable.  For example, a year ago, we helped Cornerstone Properties Ltd. issue bonds through the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) with a 4.9% annual interest rate.

BDO Israel acted as their official representative in Israel; and since then we have represented many American real estate companies in issuing bonds on TASE at very attractive rates.
