Unique opportunities call for unique structures.

The world of investing is constantly evolving and a combination of increasing analytical capabilities in an investment environment that has been characterized by relatively low returns for traditional assets and dampened volatility has hastened the advent of evermore unique fund investment opportunities. While these investments offer attractive return profiles they also possess distinct characteristics that call for the implementation of unique investment structures.

Renewable Energy

emerging technologies, shifting economic development, and other global factors are rapidly altering the landscape for the development of new forms of alternative energy. The creation of financial instruments as alternative investments in these areas has grown dramatically and is likely to see continued interest in the future.

Financial Transmission Rights (FTRs)

FTRs are financial instruments that are created and utilized by the operators of the electricity transmission grids as a tool to address and manage congestion on the system. As such, they are a unique instrument that allows investors to structure long-term, non-correlated investments through structured, alternative investment vehicles.

Shipping

The globalization of trade has led to the creation of an increasingly complex and sophisticated network for shipping and the continued maturation of this network provides numerous investment opportunities, from direct investment in shipping containers to forward markets for shipping capacity, and alternative investment structures are well suited to take advantage of these opportunities.

Soft Commodities

Markets and structures for soft commodities such as coffee, sugar, and cocoa have lagged in development when compared to their cousins like grains for a variety of factors but are now seeing a dramatic increase in interest. These markets can be very complex and development opportunities have investment characteristics that make them well suited as alternative investments.
