JLL Hires New Head of Debt Advisory in Australia

Tim du Temple brings 20 years’ real estate capital experience to corporate finance team

Tim du Temple has joined real estate firm JLL to lead its debt advisory business in Australia. The appointment will strengthen the company's corporate finance offering to better service a growing demand among clients for non-bank lending options in the buoyant Australian commercial real estate market.

Du Temple, who has worked in Australian structured real estate financing for more than a decade, previously ran his own boutique real estate capital firm. In his new role at JLL he will source debt capital both domestically and offshore for developers and investors who are seeking alternative sources of debt funding.

JLL believes the timing is right to be offering clients additional funding options as there is evidence that bank lending in Australia is tightening. According to the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) the major banks represent about 85 percent market share of the AUD $250 billion commercial real estate debt market, leaving a substantial funding gap to be filled by alternative sources.

"I'm delighted to welcome Tim on board as a key member of our growing corporate finance team in Asia Pacific," says Stuart Crow, Head of Asia Pacific Capital Markets, JLL. "In Australia, investors and developers are increasingly looking beyond the traditional banks to fund projects. Tim's experience in advising clients on debt structuring will be a great asset as we look to provide our clients with a more comprehensive service throughout the investment lifecycle."

Du Temple will work with clients on loan origination, refinancing and restructuring, advisory and fixed income services. Based in JLL's Sydney office, he will report to both Crow and Chris Key, JLL's head of Corporate Finance, Asia Pacific.

With experience spanning both Australia and the United Kingdom, du Temple previously held roles at specialist bank Investec as well as HBOS Plc. He has an MBA from Warwick Business School in the UK and a bachelor's degree from the University of Western Sydney.
