With particular routes dependent on the asset owners desires, there can be much box ticking and documentation requests. At the bare minimum the asset owner will need to verify ownership with no restrictions and must have the asset valued and examined by an experienced and well known valuation entity, which may be a well know auditing institution. With just the bare minimum in place a line of credit may be made available or potentially an investor may be interested in offering a loan against the asset in conjunction with being a part of the program the line of credit will fund.
If complete asset valuation has been completed and company audits are in place (and potentially insurance), along with in-depth details of the program which the line of credit is funding, it could be possible for a trade program to monetise the asset and use the line of credit to enter a trade program. This route can secure vastly higher returns than all other options but full transparency is required and as detailed there can be a whole lot of box ticking and necessary paperwork.
It’s good to be aware that there are a selection of routes available to monetise in-ground assets, which most entities and asset owners are not aware of. It’s also critical to understand that if you are looking to monetise your in ground assets that 100% transparency will be requested every step of the way.
