Octopus Renewables manages over £3 billion of energy assets on behalf of institutional and retail investors (at 30 June 2019).
Institutional investor solutions
The team works closely with pension funds, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds and endowments (“Institutional Investors”) to design and execute bespoke renewable energy asset strategies on their behalf.
Since May 2017 we have deployed over £350m million in UK renewable energy assets on behalf of Institutional Investors through two Renewable Energy Income Partnerships. Our third Renewable Energy Income Partnership will be deployed during 2019-2020 bringing the assets we manage for Institutional Investors to over £550m.
We can offer scale and diversification benefits to investors that want to co-invest in assets alongside other like-minded investors.
Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust
Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust (ORIT) is designed to target an attractive and sustainable level of income returns and an element of capital growth by investing in a diversified portfolio of Renewable Energy Assets in Europe and Australia.
The strategy will focus on operational assets, assets in construction and construction ready assets. It is open to both retail and institutional investors.
ORIT will place investors’ capital at risk, and you may not get back what you initially invest. Before making an investment, please ensure you’ve read and understood the Key Information Document, which can be found on the Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust website.
