Guinness Sustainable Infrastructure – Investment Strategy

What will the Guinness Sustainable Infrastructure Service invest in?

We have a conservative investment process to manage risk for Investors. Our investment strategy is designed to avoid taking unnecessary risks by staying within some simple guidelines. We outline those guidelines below:

Sustainable Energy Subscriptions will be invested in companies to help finance the construction, ownership and operation of their Sustainable Energy businesses. These projects are characterised by generally long-term, stable, inflation-linked revenues.
UK We only intend to make investments into companies and assets that are located in the UK. This means that projects operate within the UK’s stable legal and regulatory framework.
Diversification Diversification will be achieved by investing in multiple Sustainable Energy projects.
Proven Technologies The Investment Manager minimises technology risk by only investing in projects which use proven technologies that have an established operating history, such as solar PV and hydro.
Consented Projects The Investment Manager believes the optimal trade-off between development risk and financial return can be achieved by investing in businesses whose projects have already obtained the required permissions and consents, either before it has started construction or when operational.
Strong Counterparties The Investment Manager will seek to work with companies whose project developers and construction and contractors have a successful track record of delivering operating projects on time and on budget.
