In Episode 118, we brought the sunshine to Magic Markets.

Saul Maserow and Dino Zuccollo of Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management joined us to talk about Westbrooke’s response to the solar financing opportunity that has been thrust into the limelight (or sunlight?) by the failure of South Africa’s national power utility.

Westbrooke’s approach is a little different, focusing on the equity layer in the capital stack. Equity can be difficult to raise, particularly as most funding in the market seems to focus on debt for these opportunities.

Although Westbrooke’s activities in this space are not open to the public for investment, there is much to learn from Westbrooke’s approach. Perhaps most importantly, Westbrooke welcomes conversations with project owners who are looking for equity investment in significant solar projects.
