Q. How can I release equity from my property
assets quickly? A. Cobalt is able to draw on significant
private funds of cash and decisions can be made within hours
of inspecting the site and receiving relevant paperwork.
No third party approvals from "boards" or "committees"
Q. Is a Sale & Leaseback the best
solution for my business? A. Potentially not. We can offer structured
finance solutions that may not require a business to enter
into a long term lease commitment. Cobalt will seek to identify
a solution that meets your business objectives and will
help support and grow your business rather than remove flexibility
Q. What is a Structured Finance solution? A. Difficult to be specific without a

and future opportunities.

only be made with the enquirer in the manner requested and
no site visits or investigations will be undertaken without
Q. Why should I talk to Cobalt and not

will not discuss the prospect with other potential investors
Q. Are there any sectors Cobalt will
not consider? A. Probably not, try us! (albeit we have
not yet done anything in the energy generation or marine
