The Mariana Estate Planning Solution is designed to protect the value of a client’s investment from IHT by investing in companies that are expected to qualify for Business Relief (BR). Investment opportunities may include;
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) is a proven and widely implemented method of converting solar radiation energy into electrical power. The fund may invest in fully built and commissioned solar plants or new solar development opportunities. Investment returns are expected to be under-pinned by robust operations and maintenance contracts, warranties, PPAs and where applicable, government subsidies
Hydroelectric technology uses turbines to harness the energy from water flows in the natural environment or in existing water installations. Mariana’s investment team will look to secure a long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) which involves selling the electricity generated from water turbines back to the host counterparty under a private PPA, or to the National Grid.
Mariana has identified a number of investment opportunities across a range of asset classes, both in the UK and European Union, which are backed by stable long-term assets and contracts with strong counterparties, in established markets and deploying proven technologies and operating methodologies, capable of generating target returns.
Receivables Trade and Supply Chain Financing (RTSF)
RTSF is an asset backed financing arrangement wherein companies supplement their working capital and short-term liquidity needs by either using their receivables — outstanding invoices or money owed by counterparties — as collateral in a financing agreement; or by requesting the financier to pay their suppliers on their behalf and pay interest to the financier over time. In such transactions, the financing company gives the borrower an amount equal to an agreed value of the unpaid invoices or receivables and is paid back in less than a year, with interest.
Although MEPS is designed to be held for at least two years to qualify for BR, we are able in certain circumstances to facilitate quarterly redemptions for Investors wishing to redeem their investment. The Liquidity service offers a three month time frame beginning from the next Dealing Date after the Redemption Request is received. The Exit Fee for redeeming your investment will be 1% of the value of your investment. The service is offered under normal market conditions at Mariana’s discretion. For example, this service may not be available in the case of a change of applicable tax legislation.
