Brookland launches new platform

Brookland Partners, founded by former Merrill Lynch managing director Nassar Hussain, has launched a new platform to link up lenders and borrowers in real estate debt markets. Brookland said the launch was timed to coincide with the increased availability of real estate debt capital and a higher interest in refinancing. “As much needed liquidity is finally returning the firm expects that transaction flow will increase and that more capital will be available for secondary real estate towards the end of the year,” it said in a statement.
