The Group

The PayneOakland group of companies has its beginnings in 1994 as a financial structuring and treasury advisory company in Brussels. Initially, the company provided treasury advisory services to primarily European financial institutions. In the years that followed, however, the company developed an expertise in operations linked to commercial and residential real estate finance and, in particular, structured finance and asset-backed securitization. Increasingly, the activities included real estate investment and development as well as corporate finance and participations. The company has since focused on structuring financial solutions and investments for institutional and corporate investors worldwide.

Headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, PayneOakland Corporation is currently working on real estate developments and real estate structured financing in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia both directly and through its local operational companies. Furthermore, the group holds participations in various companies covering compliance technology, renewable energy and sports.

PayneOakland group focuses on three distinct sectors:

  • Real Estate Development and Investment
  • Renewable Energy
  • Corporate Finance


Payne Oakland is active in initiating, implementing and executing public and private financing transactions in real estate and renewable energy projects in international markets by leveraging its expertise in real estate services, structured finance and corporate finance.
