A global investment and financial services professional, Dirk Coetzer has served as managing director of ICON Capital Sarl since 2008. His duties at this Capellen, Luxembourg-based firm revolve around the oversight of several different investment funds. One of the sub-funds under Dirk Coetzer’s management is the Sports & Media Series 1 Sub-Fund.
Although it operates under the umbrella of the mono securitization ICON Investments Fund, the Sports & Media Series 1 Sub-Fund and its assets are independent from the other sub-funds of the ICON Investments Fund. The organizers of this fund were Mr. Coetzer, the management team at ICON Capital Sarl, and their team of authorities in the field of broadcasting.
The Sports & Media Series 1 Sub-Fund is fully registered and appears on appropriate financial industry listing systems such as Clearstream. In addition to investing in sports and media events around the world, this sub-fund stays abreast of investment opportunities that involve new advancements in broadcasting technology.
Skilled in trade and structured finance, Dirk Coetzer utilizes his experience by serving as managing director of ICON Capital Sarl and Firminy Capital Sarl, both of which are based out of Luxembourg. At the latter firm, Dirk Coetzer develops numerous sub-funds, including the Arabian Gulf Series 1 and the Brazil Bahamas Series 1.
Listed on Clearstream and other such organizations, Firminy Capital Sarl’s sub-funds keep their assets separate from the group’s other funds and sub-funds. The fund managers securitize the risks of zero coupon, bank-issued securities, project loans, and additional receivables by placing them into a single rated instrument dedicated to a sole purpose. The agency sells this instrument to institutional and corporate investors who can further its objectives.
Along with investing in specific geographical regions, Firminy Capital Sarl also maintains a Global Smart City Series 1 fund. Also found on Clearstream, this sub-fund consists of shares and medium term notes and is only available to sophisticated investors. It concentrates on securitizing risks related to development loans guaranteed by the Chinese government for purposes of building the Global Smart City. This endeavor refers to a Hong Kong holding company’s plan to produce a “Smart World” featuring a sustainable economy, environmentally clean technology, efficient mobility, and other components to make for a better life for all “citYzens.” To learn about these funds, visit firminy.eu.
