Matt Henry: 30 years of partnership and innovation with our clients

Summary

Matt Henry reveals how our clients rely on Chatham's independence and innovation to ensure they are making informed financial risk management decisions. Chatham Financial is celebrating 30 years of serving our clients.

On our client's side

Over the past 30 years, we have partnered with our real estate clients to ensure they are making informed financial risk management decisions. We have accomplished this by taking fairly complex financial structures and breaking them down to understand each independent piece. And, because we are not owned by a third party that could influence the decisions or time frame on what and when we can do it, we can always give our clients the right advice, and in giving the right advice, we can take a long-term view of their portfolios.

Our clients' achievements

Working alongside our clients, we have been able to experience some significant milestones over the years. These include the first defeasance and financing One Bryant Park in the early 2000s. What we really get excited about is when we see clients use multiple different services together — knowing that our team is integrated with our clients and that we have contributed to their success.

Our continued investment in technology over the years is an attempt to stay ahead of our clients in terms of their data needs and their decision making.

Innovation in global real estate

As we look into the future, we are most excited about leveraging the data we have in the debt capital markets. With over a trillion dollars of debt on our system and with tools such as chathamrates.com, we can provide relevant and timely information. Clients have become increasingly empowered with the tools available to make smart capital markets decisions, but we are excited to see the increasing role data plays as real estate gets more institutionalized.
