Ecofin launches Down Under

RELATED TOPICS​

London-based investment management firm Ecofin has expanded its global investment capability and regional expertise with the launch of Ecofin Australia Pty Ltd. (Ecofin Australia).

Based in Sydney, Ecofin Australia is a specialist fund manager that seeks to capitalise on the diverse global investment opportunities brought about by the long term mega-trends of energy security, climate change, population growth, urbanisation and food and water scarcity.

Led by Managing Directors Lisa Wade and Nicki Ashton, Ecofin Australia plans to provide institutional investors in the region with a specialist long-only equity thematic approach to investing that is dedicated to the sustainable opportunities presented by these long-term mega-trends.

The launch of Ecofin Australia comes after Ecofin completed the purchase of a 51% stake in Change Investment Management Pty Ltd (Change Investment Management), a Sydney-based climate change and environmental sector investment specialist founded by Wade and Ashton in 2009. As a result of the transaction, Change Investment Management has since been rebranded and now re-launched as Ecofin Australia.

Bernard Lambilliotte, Chief Investment Officer of Ecofin, said: “We are delighted to have completed this strategic equity investment and launched Ecofin Australia. By combining Ecofin’s investment expertise and experience investing in the global utilities, infrastructure, energy and alternative energy sectors with Lisa and Nicki’s specialist thematic approach, we believe we have created a particularly compelling proposition for new and existing investors. This acquisition will further enhance our skill set in exploiting the global opportunities brought about by the long term mega-trends of energy security, climate change, population growth, urbanisation and food and water scarcity.”
