A capital stack refers to the hierarchy of different sources of funding that contribute to the financing of a real estate project.

It represents the various layers of capital — each with its own risk and rate of return characteristics – contributing to a development's overall financial structure. The components of a capital stack typically include:

  • Senior debt

  • Mezzanine financing

  • Equity

Each occupies a specific position in terms of risk and repayment priority. Understanding the nuances of a capital stack is crucial for real estate professionals, investors, and developers, as it directly influences the project’s financial stability, risk profile, and potential returns.
