Monaco, officially the principality of Monaco, is a sovereign city-state located on the French Riviera. Often shrouded in mystery, the Monaco lending market is viewed as complex by many on the inside and outside. The Monaco mortgage market is unique; everything is negotiable from interest rates to assets under management, from loan structure to charges. However, to secure the best Monaco mortgages you need to have access to the wide range of commercial and private banking groups.
Monaco finance team
We have an office in the heart of the Monaco banking and finance sector where we are able to utilise our experience and contacts to the full. Aside from the unique characteristics of the Monaco financial services sector, there are further considerations such as the language, etiquette and principles. Here at Enness we have spent many years researching the Monaco market, building our contacts and constantly updating our knowledgebase. This has opened many new doors and opportunities to create an array of bespoke mortgage deals with private banking groups.
Monaco property market
The Monaco property market has a reputation as the world’s premier home for high net worth individuals. The stunning views over the coast, the relaxing Mediterranean climate and a favourable tax system have attracted international investors and business people from around the world. The insatiable appetite for finance in Monaco is well known although for some of the complex financial arrangements can prove challenging.
When looking to acquire property in Monaco you will find that $1 million buys you just 15 m² of prime real estate. There is a cost to living the high life in Monaco, but the glitz and glamour of

The Monaco real estate market is extremely liquid, fast-moving with deals often concluded in just a couple of weeks.
