Private Equity 

Fund strategy

FUND STRATEGY:

Our €200 million private equity fund targets growing operating companies, providing capital, support and knowledge to ambitious management teams.

 

INVESTMENT AREAS:

We focus solely on operating companies in the energy efficiency, resource efficiency and renewable energy sectors, exploiting the commercial opportunities brought about by a large scale transition to a low carbon, global economy. Our investment thesis is underpinned by a product or service providing a real solution or cost advantage, either in a growing niche segment of the market or with the potential to disrupt a large, established market deployed by best-in-class management teams.

Novusmodus has become Greencoat Capital 

Novusmodus LLP has changed its name to Greencoat Capital LLP [our website is now at www.greencoat-capital.com].

We remain exclusive investment adviser to the ESB Novusmodus fund, but as our activities widen, a change of name seems a sensible step.

We hope that you enjoy our new website and look forward to speaking to you soon.
