enviably net back to around 28%, which in the current climate given how competitive the
land market is, is a very strong return.

4. New commercial development in Cambridge.
We will once again be partnering with GCR our preferred development partners in Cambridge. Since the last two projects we did with them, they have become one of, if not the largest developer in Cambridge.
We will be offering our clients another JV planning uplift opportunity in this remarkable, fast growing, tech city. We have been promised its launch any day now so get in touch if you would like to know more.
5. Aerospace industry, plane leasing opportunity

 GLOBAL JET & WETLEASING EU (G/W) have successfully done more than € 60.000.000 of ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance) contracts in the last 10 years. Due to increasing demand in the travel sector post Covid-19 they are now looking to lease and operate their own aircraft in 2023. 

They are currently seeing a 68% increase in bookings compared to the same period last year which is a 24% above the pre-covid booking levels. This has led to a lack of available aircrafts on the market. Several contracts and opportunities were lost over the last months even if the rates are +45% higher than 2019 levels.

Going forward they would like to be in a much better and secure position to satisfy the needs of their clients. Instead of using different ad-hoc operators to complete their flight requests, G/W is looking to lease their own aircraft and complete some of these highly profitable requests themselves. 
G/W intends to lease one aircraft in 2023, and if the demand and sales are as expected then they intend to lease another aircraft in 2024. To accomplish this G/W requires a total investment of $1.000.000 by Q1 2023. G/W will be putting in $250.000 of their own money. 
The money will be used to establish an AOC (airline operating certificate) as well as pay the 3 months security deposit on the aircraft. Furthermore, it will allow G/W to cover all start-up cost.
This is a highly profitable industry since the EU introduced its canceled flight compensation scheme. Airlines are now far more motivated to reschedule flights rather than have to pay out up to 600 Euros for missed flights. 
With an expected return of 20-30% per annum, this should appeal to sophisticated investors with experience in the airline industry.

6. Hydrogen plants UK, Spain and Portugal. 
We are working with two of the leading developers in the Hydrogen sector to build hydrogen production facilities across Europe. With as capex of £30,000,000 plus this wont be for everybody. However if any of our larger institutional investors would like to know more more please get in touch.

Globacap announces the offering of Sustainable Impact Token (SIT) to support the construction of algae biomass farms.

SIT is the world’s first blockchain-based algae biomass project offering. The project will be built utilising patented sustainable technology to deliver a pioneering green investment opportunity.

Carbon credits generated by biomass projects will be tokenised as Algaecoin.

The world’s first blockchain-based algae biomass project, built on the energy-efficient Tezos blockchain, was today announced by leading capital markets technology firm, Globacap.
Developed and operated by Sustainable Impact Token (SIT), the project will support the development, construction, and operation of algae biomass farms. The initiative will use blockchain technology to bridge the gap between two of the fastest growing investor markets in the world – asset-backed finance and crypto.

SIT’s algae biomass farms produce high quality, non-animal protein, based on a system powered exclusively using renewable energy. These algae farms are absorbing large amounts of carbon out of the autmosphere and a net producer of renewable energy. The SIT project is currently supporting the development of a “proof of concept” algae biomass farm in Europe using patented, sustainable technology.
Myles Milston, CEO of Globacap says, “Being part of this pioneering project marks an important milestone in our ongoing mission to enable frictionless asset creation and transferability. With Globacap, the capital raising process is completely digital, mostly automated, transparent, secure, and regulatory compliant. Our work with SIT and Tezos is transformational in the way this market can operate.”
The $5 billion algae biomass sector is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% during the next 5 years ( Quince Market Insights) and the success of the project will provide the basis to expand globally. SIT provides investors with tokens issued via smart contracts deployed on the proof-of-stake Tezos blockchain, representing their preferred shares in the project. Carbon credit generated from the algae production will also be tokenized into Algaecoin, a tokenized asset representing tradable carbon credits. “By bringing agri-tech solutions and carbon credit-backed assets into private markets and beyond, we can make significant, impactful steps towards sustaining our planet for future generations,” adds Milston.
The SIT offering was designed to enable frictionless transferability in full compliance with securities regulation through the Tezos FA2 compliant token contracts for holding and settlement. This pioneering offering links the sustainable asset-backed and crypto investment worlds together to create a compelling blockchain-enabled investment vehicle. “As solutions to the macro challenges of food scarcity and sustainable energy production continue to be a global priority, demand for investment vehicles that can also support these objectives are increasing. We are thrilled to see Globacap choose Tezos to power this unique blockchain based, asset-backed offering,” says Mason Edwards, from Tezos Foundation.
Tezos is an energy-efficient open source blockchain network powered by a globally decentralised network of users and validators. Companies and builders around the globe leverage Tezos for projects exploring the potential for blockchain to be a tool for sustainable innovation. Recently, Cambridge University announced the Cambridge Centre for Carbon Credits (4C) which is creating a trusted decentralised marketplace on Tezos where purchasers of carbon credits can confidently and directly fund trusted nature-based projects that ties together corporate funders to conservationists via automated and transparent global oracles.
Globacap is committed to driving adoption of tokenization for most asset classes and providing a means for digital securitisation to global capital markets. Blockchain technology enables previously illiquid investment to now be transacted efficiently in seconds instead of weeks, and with minimal overheads. Globacap’s mission is to bring the archaic processes behind capital markets into the digital era by offering private placement, securities issuance, securities registry management, and liquidity products.
Chairman & Founder of Sustainable Impact Token, Peter Henderson, says “Our vision is to play our part in addressing some of the real challenges of our time – how can the growing world population be fed sufficiently, nutritiously and can this ambition be achieved in a way that improves, rather than harms, the environment? We believe our approach helps on all of these fronts and know that the investor community is keen to join us on the journey.”
“We wanted to structure the offering using an innovative, transparent and secure approach. Investors are being offered an attractive return, in a real asset, but through digital technology – and they can make their investments through fiat or crypto currencies.” “Bringing to market the token offering has been amazingly smooth, which is a credit to our partners at Globacap , Tezos and Lumin Capital.”
