SilverStreet Capital

Profile

Established in 2007, SilverStreet Capital is a UK-based investment advisor regulated by the FCA, managing agricultural strategies. SilverStreet’s objective is to seek attractive returns for investors while achieving a substantial positive social, environmental and climate impact.


SilverStreet benefits from:


  • Inflation-related return profile.
  • Accessing growth opportunities in faster growing economies.
  • Genuine diversification against all the main asset classes.
  • Award-winning team with a track record in impact investing.
  • The highest ESG and ethical standards.
  • Political risk insurance from the World Bank (MIGA) or the US government (DFC).


SilverStreet’s agricultural expertise enables them to identify unique opportunities with attractive risk-return profiles and substantial positive impact. Investments are largely uncorrelated to the main global economic cycles and asset classes. 


SilverStreet manages the largest African agricultural fund. Its main impact targets are to increase smallholder farmer incomes and reduce climate change risks. Many crop value chains have not yet been fully developed and this represents an exciting opportunity to invest to fill a key missing piece and enable the entire value chain. Such an investment creates an early-mover advantage for the business and a substantial multiplier effect for others across that entire value chain. Smallholder farmers can achieve higher incomes through access to better inputs or markets for higher value crops. Deforestation can be reduced by introducing smallholder farmers to conservation farming techniques and through the provision of improved inputs.
