Founders often struggle to source growth capital, unsure of the best option to take or how to best present their story, often lacking in the knowledge to deal with institutional investors. Argento helps to introduce investees to key accredited sources of capital, taking a hands-on approach to ensuring they are best prepared to market themselves to investors.
Prior to introducing a client opportunity to investors, initial appraisal and diligence is undertaken to establish its fit and viability. Following this process, the Argento investment team appraises the relevance of each opportunity and works to source capital on the best terms and deal structure. Argento seeks to leverage long-term benefits and deliver additional client value through our investor networks.
For the professional investor community, Argento acts as a trusted partner in introducing unique, high-quality opportunities from around the globe. We have a track record of building long-term relationships with leading investors and look to deliver lucrative opportunities. We scout for suitable projects based on investor mandates and advise on buy and sell side transactions.
When first introduced to an investor, we work to understand their specific criteria to find which of our pre-vetted investment opportunities are most relevant. This ensures that the opportunities we put in front of investors are clearly outlined, attractive and fit the investor objectives.
