The HS Renewable Energy Fund will shortly be created to support very well planned and risk-controlled renewable energy businesses through direct equity investment.
The definition of renewable energy is, in reality, the energy that comes from a source that is not depleted when used or is replenished within a relatively short time frame.
The world has an increasing thirst for energy and a drive for improved carbon efficiency, which is gradually reducing the use of natural resources that can be depleted or have a high impact on carbon footprint or both. The targets that are generally set are linked to past emission figures and a desire to revert to historical levels (net zero) which can be very misleading.
The strategy of the Fund is to target higher-yielding, commercially viable and sustainable renewable energy projects that are developing new ways of harvesting renewable energy or developing technological solutions across a range of industries. Highams Saaz will make direct investments into private companies through equity structures that provide very tight control over the funds invested and the investee companies.
In addition to that very tight control, Highams Saaz considers its differentiation from typical Private Equity GPs to be its solid due diligence process, as well as supporting and influencing the investee companies throughout the management of the business and the delivery process.
The HS Renewable Energy Fund will be a unique Private Equity Fund for investment in a predetermined, diversified but synergetic set of natural resource, technology and software-based companies with proprietary intellectual property, all of which are revenue-generating.
The Fund is focused on making non-leveraged investments into revenue-positive businesses for accelerated growth and international expansion.
The Fund will build on the synergetic fit between the investee’s respective technologies and business models and the expertise of the fund partners and that of its Advisory Board.
