Mirabaud Sustainable Cities provides equity to leading developers to finance restructuring and new-home programmes across France, with a focus on the leading regional cities. We provide financing for the acquisition of land plots and the restructuring of existing buildings, targeting 12% internal rate of return (IRR) net of fees over a 3-6yr time horizon at project level on a 1.6x multiple of invested capital (MOIC).
Who we work with
We have partnerships with France’s 15 leading tier-one developers, which allows us to utilise the thousands of researchers they have on the ground identifying the most attractive potential opportunities.
Unique access & approach

Increasing household numbers, alongside lifestyle changes such as working from home and seeking a better quality of life, are driving change, as is regulatory pressure for more sustainable living.
The drivers are increasing demand for housing units in smaller cities, flexible workspaces, and energy-efficient homes and businesses. The continuing need to reduce carbon emissions will also shape demand.
Investment is needed to replace old buildings with greener homes and offices, re-structure existing buildings and ultimately transform smaller cities into the smarter, sustainable, desirable cities of the future.
We believe France's approach to sustainable city redevelopment provides a unique and robust return generation opportunity through the provision of development capital.
