SPECIALIST ASSET FINANCE
There are many and varied asset backed financing transactions which provide strong, stable and secure returns to the investor. From our perspective, allocation into this asset class as a sequence of ‘one off’ transactions each requiring specialist sector knowledge is fraught with problems as the specialist expertise required to evaluate a proposal effectively varies with each and every asset.
Our strategy is to build a case for an Asset Class Theme, where the specialist knowledge, once acquired, can be utilised many times over.
Applying the Principle of the 3 P’s to an asset class theme then brings a ‘cookie cutter’ approach to each transaction – with the diligence, process and paperwork requirements being reasonably standard for each and every proposal.
The G9 works with specific asset class expertise on a number of distinct programmes each with their own unique characteristics.
In some cases (eg G9 Whisky Finance) a specialist Lending Fund Vehicle is established to facilitate ease of capital deployment.
