AST Defeasance was founded in 2007 based upon the need for a transparent defeasance consultant in the industry. We are now the largest Defeasance firm in the country and execute ~500 defeasances annually. Since 2007 we have closed over 20,000 transactions covering over $100bn in defeasance, interest rate caps and other derivative products. Over the years we have expanded our advisory services to include yield maintenance, interest rate caps, swaps and other financial products that the commercial real estate industry utilizes on a daily basis. We routinely execute both the largest and smallest transactions in the industry and have worked with nearly every brokerage, lender and owner across the country.
