Our Investment Philosophy
At Cirrus Global, we make use a of spectrum of sophisticated and highly innovative financial instruments that have been carefully evaluated and chosen due to the fat that these are very well suited to the types of business, clients, and projects that we seek to address.
Primarily, we make use of debt-based instruments to support and meet the financing needs of our clients, although we can, in certain cases, also assist the equity-based investment, but this is not our preferred orientation.
We will only accept appointments from clients that require financing of US$ 100 million or more, and who can adequately demonstrate a robust, economically viable and financially sustainable business plan evidenced by means of credible forward-looking projections that show that a specified minimum internal-rate-of-return is attainable.
Cirrus Global will also require equity participation in the business or project being financed at a pre-specified and pre-agreed minimum level, and in order to properly exercise corporate governance and oversight, will additionally require the location of at least two board seats.
We, at Cirrus Global, work with carefully selected, competent merchant banks in order to source capital and apply this capital by means of the financial instruments mentioned earlier.
