most people we work with are extremely busy and we respect that, but we must manage expectations between all parties.

​from the initial exclusivity (nbo/loi) period, to due diligence and legals. the target being; the deal getting to close in a professional manner. 


our role is to communicate the opportunity to a targeted audience that are willing to work in a flexible, expedient and fair way.

we work with a select group of investors, all looking for something different. our role is to target the best investor for each unique deal.


once we are comfortable with the expectations of one another, we look to agree an exclusive mandate.

other companies are quite happy to redistribute project teasers to fifty investors and hope they get a bite; that´s not us. 

​we ask for a mutually beneficial committment.
