ThomasLloyd, the impact investor and provider of climate-related finance, has raised EUR339 million from clients through its sustainable investment solutions in the 2019 financial year, representing a considerable year-on-year (2018: EUR209 million) increase of no less than 63 per cent. The money acquired from clients came to the company primarily from its core European markets.
As a result, ThomasLloyd is again taking first place for the second year in a row in the ranking of real-asset-investment providers published every year in Germany's trade press. The transactions incorporated into this analysis include infrastructure bonds ('green bonds') and closed- and open-ended infrastructure funds (AIFs) issued in Liechtenstein and Luxembourg as well as structured, sustainable investment solutions.
'It shows that ongoing climate change and the associated, negative consequences for the most important foundation of human life – an intact environment – have led to a broad change in awareness, including on the part of investors. Sustainable investment themes with a focus on climate-friendly infrastructure projects in selected emerging economies are being rated more highly by both private and institutional investors', says T.U. Michael Sieg, Chairman and Group CEO of the ThomasLloyd Group, commenting on the successful acquisition. 'As a pioneer and bridge-builder for viable infrastructure projects in countries and regions whose development into sustainable economies promises the greatest effect in the battle against climate change.'
