As bank lending is difficult to come by, our job is to unlock access to efficient funding for sound, yet cash-intensive commodity transactions and capital investments.
We are passionate about the commodities and natural resources markets, and have a long track record of deal-making. Our expertise gives us a robust capacity to understand and analyse our clients’ needs in-depth − and translate them into tailor-made structures that financial backers can commit to.
We feel that financing and credit insurance are too often dealt with separately. So much value can be found by addressing the two subjects jointly.
As an independent firm, we are prepared to spend the time and effort necessary to provide our clients with the solutions they need to support their business development.
