Aiming to generate long-term returns through investments in sustainable infrastructure and supporting the shift from finite resources to clean energy.

Our New Energy & Sustainable Infrastructure investments are focused on transformative technologies and industries that we believe will deliver strong financial returns alongside supporting the transition to a more sustainable world.

Our investments directly address key sustainability challenges and provide innovative solutions that enable a new, more sustainable, way of living. We seek a positive impact while also achieving strong risk-adjusted financial returns. Some of the areas within which we source investable solutions include:

  • The transition to a low carbon energy system is a global challenge: we seek to invest in projects that enable the transition to renewably-sourced electricity and the electrification of other energy-intensive segments of the economy which have typically been fuelled by oil & gas (such as heating and transportation). Specifically, we invest in renewable energy projects (solar and wind) and lead the UK in the area of utility-scale energy storage which addresses the intermittent nature of renewable energy generation.
  • Pollution and waste: we invest in projects that help to sustainably manage waste from all areas of the economy, often diverting waste from landfill or providing alternative end uses to waste by enabling reuse, recycling or conversion to low-carbon heat and energy. These initiatives typically make an active contribution to the circular economy in line with the global sustainability agenda.
  • Agricultural Technology Infrastructure (Agri-tech): there is an opportunity to restore swathes of our country’s natural habitats through investment in Agri-tech projects such as vertical farming or aquaculture that make much better use of both land and water while also reducing chemical use and ‘food miles’ and associated pollution and emissions.

Alongside our investment management capability, our TradeRisks business is also able to offer solutions for financial sponsors and developers of all real assets including:

  • Debt Arrangement and Placement: Bonds (including US PP), Syndicated Loans
  • Infrastructure Hedging Advisory
  • Strong Expertise in European projects: Renewable Energy, TMT, Transportation, Oil & Gas and Infrastructure
