Please see our short video, it helps explain everything.
The Libra Token
Impact Investing - Your money, making a difference.
For far too long investment houses have been all about returning profit, no matter how and at whatever cost, often with little or no thought as to the sustainability of the underlying assets, and how these investments will impact the world in the long term. Most funds are driven by greed and profit rather than a desire to change the world for the better.
Impact investing is a term that we expect to start hearing a lot more of in future.
An impact investment primary goal is understanding what effect investing in a project or company will have on the environment, lives, and education of those living and working in the project area.
Our goal is making the world a better place through investing in projects that will change the lives of many for the better in a way that is sustainable and ecologically enhancing.
Our Token has been designed as a vehicle to raise capital to directly invest in projects that will be developed by the Libra project Asset management team.
Each project completed will generate an air drop and a distribution in tokens to all existing token holders full details of this can be found in our white paper.
The Libra Fund Management’s novel approach to investment management is based on the idea that value can be extracted during all phases of a potential asset’s development, construction and operation. Conventional energy funds tend to buy out operating cashﬂow positive assets and in doing so end up paying for the developer’s, consultant’s, contractor’s and broker’s proﬁts leaving little to no space for added value.
Libra project asset management brings exceptional technical acumen to the table in order to develop potential assets after carrying out in-depth techno - economic studies, value engineering and efﬁcient operations techniques and methodologies. Our aim is to deliver high - performing clean power infrastructural projects and paying developer’s prices to do so, effectively increasing yields and generating real tangible value.
The Token supporting these physical developments will gain in value on the completion of these projects and also gain in social value forms he jobs, education, renewable energy, clean water and social impact these projects create as a primary focus.
Libra project asset Management’s investments will be focused in what we perceive are the world’s fastest growing and stable markets, namely the GCC, Southeast Asia, and East Africa. Off-takers of produced energy will be restricted to either sovereign governments or high creditworthy multinational companies. These markets will be addressed by funds raised into different LP’s that will target opportunities developed by Libra Energy Management to the shovel-ready stage of maturity.
