Investment Success. Redefined.
We specialize in identifying the preeminent licensed, recreational & medical dispensaries and award winning cultivation operations in densely populated areas with high household income, especially in and around the greater Los Angeles area. Our team includes professionals with extensive operational expertise dating back to the genesis of the cannabis legalization movement.
Our first fund seeks to acquire and operate a portfolio of “crown jewel” assets in Southern California, the most valuable retail cannabis market in the world. We have award winning growers, world renowned design talent and a proven retail model as industry innovators. We have already identified and started collaborating with four already-operating-dispensaries and one cultivation facility in the Los Angeles area.
Alternative Asset Fund Cannabis
Plouton Capital is seeking to create a high end, branded portfolio of retail cannabis dispensaries which benefit from vertical integration with proprietary cultivation operations. Plouton’s brand concept for its dispensaries is being developed via its exclusive relationship with renowned designer Christian Lamb. Mr. Lamb’s vision is to create high end, yet warm and inviting destinations. Subdued lighting, cool music playing, rotating photography, old worn leather couches, textures of wood, decayed steel and tile, rich fabrics and upholstery, glass enclosures, and antique objects d’art encapsulate Mr. Lamb’s aesthetic. Retail employees will be cast as modern, attractive, stylish, and knowledgeable. Attention to detail, creating true customer loyalty, and bringing style and sophistication are cornerstones of Mr. Lamb’s design philosophy.
