About Arrow

Introducing Arrow

Arrow is a leading European vertically integrated alternative asset manager specialising in private credit and real estate.

Arrow was founded in 2005 by Zach Lewy, CEO, CIO, with the ambition of creating Europe’s leading private credit and real estate investment platform. Today, we deliver best-in-class risk-adjusted returns for global investors across: Opportunistic Credit, Real Estate Lending and Real Estate Equity.

Arrow’s hallmark is to invest opportunistically, moving between European geographies, asset classes and positions in the capital stack as we evaluate evolving risk/return dynamics. To execute this strategy, Arrow has developed its geographic and asset-class expertise in its target markets.

We own critical parts of the European infrastructure which gives us a practical advantage when operating in fragmented European markets. Our best-in-class asset management and servicing platforms generate differentiated opportunities through disciplined investing, underwriting insight and proprietary dealflow. This vertically integrated advantage allows us to create sustainable value through market cycles.

Arrow’s local advantage is underpinned by 2,000 talented professionals who are deeply connected to our local markets. We have brought together leading practitioners, both locally and centrally, in European private credit and real estate, and our diverse workforce means we build meaningful connections in these markets through our investments.

Our people

Our teams are experts in their chosen fields, and our specialist teams cover areas such as development finance, non-performing loans, single name bankruptcy, corporate restructuring, bridge and agricultural lending, and small business loans. Our local advantage also extends to our unrivalled origination network, forensic underwriting, and portfolio management.

With the added benefit of key European regulatory licences, we service approximately €95+ billion of AUM. Our strong track record, predominantly with real estate asset backed investments, spans across a broad range of opportunities, involving more than €10 billion invested over the last 20 years.

We operate across six European geographies, with our headquarters in London and offices in cities including, but not limited to, Milan, Rome, Lisbon, Porto, Madrid, Amersfoort, Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Dublin, Manchester, Leeds, and Jersey.

Arrow’s longstanding relationships with its investors, business partners and lenders are a testament to our success in meeting the highest standard of fairness, cooperation, transparency, and commitment to the communities in which we operate.
