Encavis Asset Management AG obtains commitments from institutional investors to invest equity capital in excess of EUR 180 million

- Equity capital commitments from new and existing institutional clients
- Committed funds allow investments in renewable energy plants in the amount of roughly EUR 500 million
- Funds to be used to build up a diversified portfolio of European wind and solar parks operated via government feed-in tariffs or PPAs
 
Neubiberg, 20 December 2018 - Encavis Asset Management AG (Encavis AM), headquartered in Neubiberg near Munich, has obtained equity capital commitments totaling some EUR 180 million from institutional investors for investments in renewable energy plants. This capital will be sufficient to realze a total invest volume of almost half a billion euros in wind and solar parks in Europe. The funds come from institutional investors under a new direct mandate and two special funds currently distributed by renowned banking partners. In addition, a financial institution that is already an Encavis AM client has again made available a significant amount for direct investments in European solar parks. First investments are expected for the fourth quarter of 2018.

The capital will be used to build up broadly diversified portfolios of wind and solar parks in various European countries. Besides the diversification across energy generation types and regions, it is planned to acquire both plants benefiting from government-guaranteed feed-in tariffs and parks operated on the basis of long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs).

"With the capital commitments of our institutional clients Encavbis Asset Managament contributes to the successful growth strategy of the entire Encavis Group. We are very happy about the confidence placed in our technical, financial and legal expertise for investments in renewable energy plants," says Karsten Mieth, member of the Management Board of Encavis Asset Management AG.
