CHICAGO, Dec. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — JLL‘s Capital Markets group announced today that it has arranged $463 million in financing for a 13-property portfolio of the broader Manulife Investment Management and Scannell Properties recapitalization, which was announced last week.
JLL represented the borrowers, Scannell Properties and Manulife Investment Management, to secure financing through Oxford Properties Group.
The sub-portfolio that was financed included 13 properties located in eight major distribution markets across the country.

JLL’s Capital Markets team was led by Senior Managing Directors Keith Largay and Ken Martin, Associate Tara Hagerty and Analyst Tucker Dixon.
“Even in today’s interest rate environment, the lending community remains highly liquid for best-in-class industrial product within strong distribution markets,” Largay said.
“The execution of the sub-portfolio refinance and broader recapitalization demonstrates capital’s confidence in the fundamentals of the industrial market,” added Martin.
“This investment reflects our strategy to focus on larger sized credit opportunities in sectors with strong fundamentals,” said Nu Suwankosai, Head of Global Credit, Oxford Properties Group. “Investing in these high-quality assets complements our strong industrial credit portfolio, and speaks to our conviction in U.S. logistics.”
