Sustainable Finance is our business. Albion Capital focuses on structured finance opportunities in the sustainable infrastructure space – where finance demand is expected to be higher than market capacity in the years to come. Higher demand – improved returns.
Disintermediation and efficient use of capital. We improve returns by cutting out unnecessary banking intermediaries. We bring projects directly to the capital markets via high quality securitized assets – leading to lower cost of capital and higher yield to our investors.
We go beyond business as usual. We engage potential investments at a much earlier stage than traditional funders and take a hands-on approach in the structuring and preparation of the investment opportunity. We have a willingness to work with ventures with higher complexity levels, longer timelines and/or scaling needs because we understand that the resource often in shortest supply is expertise to build financing structures and business models that are amenable to financial markets.
Proper risk management. Underlying asset quality will always take precedence. We look for promising businesses with strong fundamentals, led by top tier management teams.
