Sansom Capital specialises in providing commercial and financial support to accelerate agricultural and food related growth opportunities that are both transformative and deliver social, environmental and financial returns. Through a ‘seed and lead’ investment strategy, Sansom Capital works closely with talented agricultural operators to build bankable agricultural and food related businesses that:
• Produce premium products suitable for domestic and export markets;
• Unlock value of real assets; and
• De-commoditise the supply chain, closing the gap between producer and consumer.
Sansom Capital is primarily focused on asset backed production opportunities and related infrastructure which when combined with innovation and capital are capable of providing long-term risk adjust returns.
People tend to focus on the here and now. The problem is that, once global warming is something that most people can feel in the course of their daily lives, it will be too late to prevent much larger, potentially catastrophic changes. Solar is cost effective right now. When you consider the cost to our health from air pollution, solar is just as competitive as any other energy source. The clear and present danger of climate change means we cannot burn our way to prosperity. We already rely too heavily on fossil fuels. We need to find a new, sustainable path to the future we want. We need a clean industrial revolution.
The Sansom Financing arm is focused on providing collaborative funding solutions that are uniquely optimized to best suit the particular needs of the company. Sansom Financing will work closely with Management to enhance their corporate structure and product offerings with the provision of debt instruments that are best suited to a comprehensive solution.
Debt investment capabilities include project development and financing, acquisition financing, term loans, restructuring support, convertible mezzanine financing and equipment financing.
Sansom Capital selectively acquires properties during anti-cyclical times to ensure ongoing returns to investors throughout the life of the investment and a capital gain upon disposal. Our disciplined investment criteria, based upon solid property development, management and financial skills provide value add solutions, and ensures the strategy provides the most attractive opportunities to the business and its investors. Our investment philosophy is centred around medium to long term asset retention. Each property will have a unique value add opportunity, and may perhaps involve improving the tenancy schedule and lease covenants, or some development or refurbishment. The nature of property investment ensures that each opportunity will be unique, enabling investors to diversify their investment risks and increase the reliability of returns. Sansom Capital provides access to a vast amount of property experience and the opportunity to invest in assets that are unique in nature, provide an investment return, but have a sustainable and green influence.
