While climbing on Mount Saint Elias in Alaska with a group of Tech CEO’s the conversation turned to the challenge of debt funding. There was a dawning realization that the majority of these company’s value was no longer tied to physical assets against which debt could be raised. Why was it so difficult to use intangible assets such as intellectual property or data as the offset for a loan? Surely accounting standards could not be the only reason that this was not done? This set off a chain reaction of activity that saw the creation of the Traust Group of Companies and the creation of the Intangible Asset Collaterialization market that Traust Structured leads.
