We are a Portuguese company dedicated to providing business advisory and investment management services, and we are looking for a partnership for the purpose of establishing an agreement with an African Government for raising and managing investment funds on behalf of the State, and the management of the assets acquired with funds raised this way.
At this moment, we already have a constituted company, with a realized share capital of about 2.7 million euros, and we have already started contacts and negotiations for the establishment of an exclusive agreement with the Government of the intended country, for the management of investments and fundraising for structuring projects on an exclusive basis.
Globimiosótis™ is part of the investment management industry, which is globally valued at around $80 trillion US Dollars in assets under management (AuM). We foresee to have assets worth around $10 billion under our management in five years. Those assets will be acquired with funds that will be raised against sovereign guarantees to be issued by the Sao Tome and Principe's Government in the context of an exclusive investment management agreement that is to be signed between that Government and Globimiosótis™ in the coming months.
For the aforementioned fundraising efforts, we are targeting the international debt market, where there are creditor entities available to provide large amounts of funds to finance structuring investment projects against sovereign guarantees. We have already identified some of the creditors of this kind and, being conservative, we anticipate raising an average of $ 2 billion a year over the next five years, totaling around $10 billion in that period.
Problem or Opportunity
The Government of the Democratic Republic of Sao Tome and Principe intends
to carry out a series of structural and strategic projects, as part of the Country's national development strategy, the Sao Tomé and Príncipe Transformation Agenda 2030, for which they require ability to raise dozens of billions USD and large scale investment management expertise. The implementation of the aforementioned development strategy was expected to begin in 2015, but until now the Country has experienced immense difficulties in getting funding and appropriate technical support from the outside world. These difficulties have practically paralyzed the Government's efforts to implement its major planned structures and infrastructures, truly strategic and structuring for the economy, which puts the Country at a real impasse.
Until the preparation of this business plan, there was no data on the existence of any financing company, not even a public or private fund, operating in Sao Tomé and Príncipe, intended for large size investments in the area; and since, according to our conversation with the Government, there is a firm and determined interest in establishing a private public partnership with our firm for the purposes of this business plan, we anticipate, with a great deal of certainty, that there is no alternatives other than Globimiosotis™ for solving the existing problem and that we have the opportunity to benefit as a pioneer private company to establish itself in the Country with this vocation.
Advantages or differentiators
Globimiosótis™ is better placed than anyone else in the world to seize on this opportunity and conduct investments for the purposes specified in this document, for a number of reasons, namely, having a promoter and manager who has in-depth knowledge of the business, market and terrain, as well as advanced technical knowledge, having served the Government of STP as Minister, holding a PhD degree specifically dedicated to the development of the economy of small island states, in general, and of STP, in particular. In addition, Dr Albertino has high-level consulting and management experiences, having served a variety of businesses, including international organizations such as the United Nations system.
Given the good and firm relationships we have already established with the top leadership of the Government and the positive outcome of the talks we have been having with the Prime Minister to date, Globimiosótis™ obtained a first expression of Government interest in the possibility of establishing an exclusive agreement for fundraising under sovereign guarantees for, and management of, the relevant projects.
This situation is seen as an unprecedented opportunity for us, as our knowledge of the ground and the surrounding market, the availability of an international financial market worth trillions of US dollars in investment funds, and our availability and competence for intermediary and advisory services in fundraising and investment management present a clear solution for this challenge.
Globimiosótis also has the advantage of having a second promoter who also has experience in the public administration of the country concerned, having served as Inspector General of Finance for over 10 years.
Another advantage of the Company is its location in the center of Europe, in one of the largest investment management markets in the world, Luxembourg, which also benefits from immense business environment conditions and highly qualified and experienced staff.
Globimiosótis™ sales are defined by the amount of gross revenues obtained from investment operations that will be carried out, which, in turn, will be proportional to the volume of funds that will be under the Company's management.
In the expectation of obtaining, with the Government of São Tomé and Príncipe, exclusive agreements for the fund raising and investment management efforts, Globimiosótis™ expects to be able to raise funds, backed by sovereign guarantees, to finance the construction of a deepwater port, an international airport, an oil refinery, some industrial parks, an international logistic hubs; water, energy and transport infrastructures, as well as industrial fisheries, agriculture and housing, including the construction of the nucleus of a new city.
Assuming the 2/20 fee structure, which is standard in the investment management industry, that is, 2% commission on the amount raised and 20% on the annual income derived from the management of the respective investments, we anticipate, under our conservative estimates, assets under management that can surpass $10 billion and revenues that can exceed $800 million in the next five years.
Interest rate, %
Type of pledge
Pledge and assets
We propose the lenders to own 50% until the loan is repaid. Once the loan is settled, the lenders will transfer their stake to Globimiosótis.
Proposed type of PPP: BUILD – OWN – OPERATE – TRANSFER (BOOT):
The Government is open to offering more favourable and beneficial conditions to the funder by agreement; however, we anticipate that the funder builds and owns the facility for the duration of the contract, with the primary goal of recouping construction costs (and more) during the operational phase. At the end of the contract the facility is handed back to the Government. Other forms of partnerships are open to negotiation at the choice of the funder.

Solution (product or service)
For some time now, Globimiosótis™ has held exploratory talks with the Prime Minister of Sao Tomé and Príncipe, Mr. Jorge Lopes Bom Jesus, on the possibility of establishing a strategic partnership with the Government for fundraising and management of the above mentionned development projects, which requires more elaborate and in-depth market research, which in turn requires both the establishment of a robust business structure and a highly skilled and dedicated work team on the ground.
In order for Globimiosótis™ to be able to give substance to these preliminary contacts and grasp this great business opportunity, by transforming this relationship with the STP Government into an exclusive agreement, backed by sovereign guarantees, the Company is required to install on the ground a duly equipped business facility with a permanent staff to manage such relationships and the business itself.
In other words, Globimiosótis™ plans to set up a subsidiary investment management company in Luxembourg to establish a permanent relationship with the Government of the Democratic Republic of Sao Tome and Principe, where the Compaany will also maintain a local branch, through an investment management agreement that will grant it, on an exclusive basis:
1. The award of investment advisory services within the scope of the Sao Tome and Principe's Transformation Agenda 2030, in the context of which, the Company will develop projects and respective business plans to be presented to international creditors;
2. The right to negotiate and raise funds, against sovereign guarantees to be issued by the STP Government, and manage the projects financed under the above mentioned agreement.
• New in the market, it might take some time for our organization to break into the market and gain acceptance, so to raise the required cash to give our business the kind of starting jump we would have loved to;
• Because it is a pioneer in the market, there is a factor of unpredictability, due to the lack of experience with the peculiarity of the local market, which requires that a contingency plan be established.
• Just as in any other business and investment vehicles, lack of liquidity, unfavorable government economic policies, disasters, etc. can hamper the growth and profitability of wealth management firms.
Incubation/Acceleration programs accomplishment
We did not participate in acceleration or incubation programs, but we carried out a research and development project for about 4 years, with an investment of about 2.7 million euros. We have developed a fund management system that will revolutionize the investment management industry in the near future. We named it SOLID CRESCENT CAPITAL CO. (SCC). It is based on an exclusive strategy and technological solution that resulted from a three-year R&D project. It has the potential to keep risks at levels lower than 1% and convert every €1 into more than €6 yearly (Over 500% growth) with high levels of liquidity. Performance tests carried out so far, involving different periods of time, ranging from one to ten years, show impressive results in all cases. (For further information, please click here).
