Amberside ALP is giving investors the opportunity to buy ISA qualifying bonds and benefit from tax free income generated by loans to infrastructure projects. ALP is backed by Amberside Capital and CH1 Investment Partners. ALP is not regulated by the FCA.
The experienced team conduct professional due diligence on every transaction, provide a clear understanding and suitable mitigation of the risks involved and support borrowers not served well by major high street banks. Amberside ALP have a pipeline of solar parks, grid support facilities, effluent treatment plants and other similar infrastructure projects.
ALP lends to infrastructure projects and other similar asset-backed schemes with predictable long term revenue streams. We have identified a sector of the market, loans below £20 million, which is poorly served by banks and the other usual providers of project finance for infrastructure assets.
We are usually the senior lender to a project, which means in the event of a default ALP has the first call over the assets of the borrower, which can be used to recover the debt. By targeting a niche market, ALP can obtain returns on senior debt that infrastructure funds deliver on higher risk equity.
