advisory services to companies that invest in real assets
Experts in Real Assets
Small institutions find it difficult to access investments in real assets like avocado orchards in Mexico. We come in here and enable exposure to this asset class, ideally by structuring partnerships where companies can partner with experts in a niche market.
Alternative investments have higher minimum investments than traditional assets. Most times, smaller institutions cannot afford to invest in these types of assets but through securitization, we help companies reduce the minimum investments for their clients.
Alternative investments like real assets are illiquid investments. There are limited traded commodities. Therefore, only investors with a very long time horizons are able to invest in real assets. We advise companies on solutions to improve the liquidity of their underlying stock.
Naturally, the costs of acquiring and managing real assets are high. As such, smaller institutions cannot afford in-house expertise. We provide local experts , and help clients reduce their costs by applying economies of scale.
We are poised to structure an investment that will drive and provide the highest convexity, so that a high reward can be earned for every unit of risk taken. We see risk in terms of permanent loss of capital, rather than in terms of volatility. We have a conviction that niche growth markets like avocado are viable and superior investment opportunities in a world of limited resources.

Preservation of capital is paramount to investing. Real assets provide adequate protection, especially in a world that has been distorted by the printing press of central banks across the world.
In terms of investing, there is nothing like free lunch. We provide true diversification from systematic risks. The naive geographical diversification however is not effective when needed the most i.e. when volatility rises and correlations increase.
Cash flows provide downside protection and are relatively a more stable way of determining expected returns.

Shared interests lead to shared success. We are rewarded if you have outstanding returns. We are penalized if you have a negative performance. Our remuneration reflects our value added.
