We structure, syndicate and manage the financing of highly profitable, long-term mining and infrastructure projects in which debt and equity used to finance the project are paid back from operating cash flows.
Our experience in structured finance and in project development in the sector allows us to optimally design and manage the risk profile of our projects for all shareholders and partners
Our projects are backed by large, international institutions from different backgrounds which, not only gives us access to the volume of funds necessary to develop our projects, but also allows us to develop efficient financing structures that maximize both investors' return and capital efficiency of the project to benefit owners.
Our investment process is designed to maximize efficiency for both our partners and backers.
