We develop alternative finance strategies to meet the needs of the property and capital markets, as well as having viable sustainable strategies. This is done in the process of analysing and advising on risk-return scenarios of projects, capital structures and investment strategies.
In the process of bridging the gap between vision and feasible implementation, we change focus; from quantity to quality, from competition to collaboration and from dominating nature to working with nature. As such, we formulate concrete proposals on how to improve the triple bottom line performance of the underlying investments.
Capital & Debt
We advise clients on bridging the gap between opportunities and capital markets, working with a bespoke selection of providers of senior debt, mezzanine, and equity finance throughout Europe.
In this process we can originate and structure, equity, senior and mezzanine debt financing to make acquisitions, developments and refinancing feasible.
When managing (re)financing processes we handle, deal analyses, the coordination of all loan application documents, coordinating third-party advice, managing the closing, etc.
We support entrepreneurs, investment managers and investors in structuring investment funds, partnerships, and joint ventures.
As such we provide advice on (financial) restructuring of the funds and develops and implements methods to optimize financial and impact performance.
We can manage the process from initial idea to reviewing and negotiating the relevant documentation. For this process we deploy tailor-made teams based on the unique requirements of each assignment.
In rethinking corporate strategies, the focus should shift from growth to resilience, and from shareholders to stakeholders. Basically, taking a holistic view on the impacts and changes caused by a company. This impact can be positive or negative, intended, or unintended.
By focusing on overall impacts, instead solely on growth, one can create Smart Growth. Smart growth is a form of growth, which not just involves generating monetary gain for shareholders, but also creates a positive value for all stakeholders, such as staff, local communities, society, and our environment. Smart Growth requires as much focus on growing the impact of a company as its financial progress.
With Smart Growth analyses we assist companies to become more relevant to society and therefore more resilient. Something which will result in lower capital costs and creating long-term shareholders value, as climate action, sustainability and impact on society increasingly redefine how we measure business success.
