The team at First Sustainable actively seeks to develop innovative, first-to-market, bespoke structured finance and capital markets based solutions to provide the most efficient and profitable financing approaches to build, acquire and/or aggregate large portfolios of sustainable project assets. Our objective is to provide shareholders with a legitimate option to permanently refinance such assets in the debt capital markets, thereby materially reducing exposure and enhancing returns.
We complement our superior, core financing skills by integrating and/or partnering with the most competent, best-of-breed business development professionals, who are most likely to generate an abundance of project opportunities which can benefit from our proprietary financing solutions.
We aggregate large, securitizable portfolios of sustainable project assets, by building greenfield projects and/or acquiring already operating or existing projects or their associated loans.
Having acquired a critical mass of assets, we endeavor to securitize our assets at the most favorable terms possible.
To the extent that we perceive no conflicts with our core business activities, we can provide advice to third party sustainable project developers, wishing to benefit from our financing and capital markets expertise.
We recognize that some opportunities, particularly larger sustainable projects, may be more conducive to a one-off financing transaction as opposed to a programmatic financing solution. In such cases, we will seek to provide the most efficient solution possible, whether it bank project finance or the structuring and issuance of project related asset backed bonds.
At First Sustainable, we have the experience and talent capable of solving any number of financing challenges which may characterize or be associated with a sustainable project asset. Such challenges may include creditworthiness of off-takers, reliability of feedstock, monetization of credits or incentives, price volatility of feedstock, etc.. We welcome any opportunity to solve such unique challenges.
