CVS Lane Capital Partners Pty Ltd (“CVS Lane”) is a specialist property finance and investment business established in 2011.


We work with a national network of property and investor clients, and presently have active involvement in transactions in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, while a Western Australian office was opened during 2021.


We have provided capital across the entire capital structure from first mortgage, second mortgage, preferred equity and equity and have invested in land subdivisions, residential and commercial development.


Since inception we have raised more than $2.1 billion across 145 plus transactions with an end value greater than $4 billion.

What we stand for

First and foremost we are a relationship-driven business with a focus on building long-term, trusted partnerships. Relationship banking is in our DNA. It is how we have been trained and how we believe business should be conducted.


Secondly, we are an advice-driven business. Our starting point is to understand our clients’ needs and drivers and to then endeavour to offer the best available solutions, taking into account structures, risk, market conditions and investor appetite.


Finally, we are absolutely focused on risk: identifying risks, attempting to minimise risk where possible and managing risks which cannot be eliminated. We have developed a comprehensive due diligence and documentation framework to ensure our processes and procedures back-up our focus on risk.
