What we offer you

Scipion provides cross border private debt solutions and advisory services to finance the delivery, production and processing of non-perishable commodities. Facilities are asset backed and secured on the underlying commodities including metals, energies and softs, as well as other non-perishable bulk goods. The fund’s borrowers are typically medium sized companies and can be involved in different parts of the commodity supply chain and include miners, traders, agri-businesses and industrialists located within emerging markets and in major trading centres.

Scipion’s team of analysts and compliance officials undertake ongoing reviews of geographical and geopolitical factors to maintain lists of countries where Scipion will or will not carry out business.
