Mining/Energy/ Infra. finance – Does your project need funding?
We have a wide network of funders, with appetite for various risk levels/ stages of life in a project. From early stage/ in construction/ no revenue/ no JORC/ no BFS, to a producing asset.. Funders range from non- bank lenders, to offtake advance, royalties, asset finance. We also have funders across traditional Project Finance, Acquisition finance, export credit, etc, for established businesses. We work from our clients office (or mine-site). We sit next to the mine team, or the port team, or the infra. team. We go to site and we ask questions- we want to understand the key drivers and red flags for the project, so we can best match funders in our network with the risk profile of the project.
