Case study:

Aviva Commercial Finance


Aviva’s ambition

Aviva, the FTSE 100 insurer, sought to trade Project Churchill, a £2.5bn book of UK commercial property loans.

Client challenge

Aviva Commercial Finance wanted to rebalance its real estate loan book away from lending that didn’t fit with its future business plans.

See the world differently

We used our specialist knowledge in real estate, loan performance and borrower dynamics to deliver a due-diligence pack that underpinned pricing for potential investors. This minimised execution risk and maximised realisation.

Ambition achieved

JLL, hired along with Deloitte, empowered Aviva to deliver on their objectives. The result: a circa £2.5bn trade – one of the world’s largest non-government deals of 2015.
