We strive to provide investors with professionally-managed portfolios that meet or exceed their investment return and impact objectives. We have been in the vanguard of the cleantech/impact movement since our investment research into this area began in 2003. We launched the first cleantech private equity fund of funds in 2006, followed by several additional impact funds covering primaries, secondaries, infrastructure, co-investments and/or special situations. We have analyzed, researched and interviewed hundreds of managers and cleantech companies worldwide and the depth and breadth of our market knowledge and investment network is both extensive and unparalleled.
