With particular routes dependent on the asset owners wider plan, there can be much box ticking and documentation requests. At the basic level the asset owner will need to 100% ownership with no restrictions and must have the asset valued and examined by an experienced and well known valuation organisation, 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.
