First European
Net Zero
Equity Fund

A Eurozone fund for Eurozone investors

Why invest
in EU Net Zero?

Unparalleled EU and Private Stimulus

Over €4trn of EU, Member State and Private capital to be allocated to Net Zero targets in next 5 years (Goldman Sachs)

‘Game Changing’ company impact

Rising order books, revenues, earnings of companies that own, supply, install, renovate, upgrade, maintain, service the generation, transmission and consumption of energy across utility, industrial, real estate and auto sectors

Investors slow to reflect in valuations
across industrial supply chains

EU equity valuations at all-time relative and historic lows due to interest rate rises, geopolitical risks, US bank deposit risk and irrational exuberance of post Covid environment

Current investment product offering appears ‘greenwashed and generic’

Current investment fund range overly focused on UN Sustainable Development
goals and full ESG integration. The EU SFDR to scrutinise the shelf

Net Zero is Growth Innovation Opportunity

European Target
Net Zero Fund


The European Union Net Zero Carbon Targets: The EU is set to deploy over €1trn of capital to achieve a 55% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050


We have modelled out and met with many listed and late-stage private equity EU companies that significantly benefit from this capital through the ownership, manufacturing, installation and/or maintenance of projects, products and services which contribute to and enable the EU net zero targets


We are opening a closed-end AIFM fund comprising a concentrated EU midcap stock portfolio (min 80%) and late-stage private capital portfolio (max 20%)


Listed Portfolio: 2.0x return over a 3 to 5 year horizon driven by 10%-20% earnings growth pa and 10% valuation expansion pa

Unlisted Portfolio: 2.5x-3.0x multiple on invested capital (MOIC) over a 5 year horizon driven by project selection and disciplined capital deployment

Why now?

A once in a generation opportunity to gain exposure to Euro Zone Equities due to…

  • EU Green/Energy Efficiency spend only now reaching order books – in revenues by late ‘23 onwards.
  • The EU policy and funding is in place and only now beginning to be deployed.
  • The EU putting up Clean Tech trade barriers around its IP and supply chains.

In addition:

  • European equity valuations at historic lows.
  • European equities outperform in times of rising inflation, rising interest rates and weaker US dollar.
  • Investors anchored to US growth/Tech from falling interest rates – unlikely – inflation persistent.

  • Invest in Eurozone Net Zero companies for Eurozone clients.
  • Think regionally about Net Zero targets.
  • Invest alongside direct EU Green policy incentives.
  • Set economic return targets and environmental targets.
