QUAERO CAPITAL has seen its thematic funds Quaero Capital Funds (Lux) -Accessible Clean Energy A USD and Quaero Capital Funds (Lux) – Infrastructure Securities A EUR recognised by the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards Switzerland 2021 as the best Swiss funds over 5 years and 3 years respectively in the “Equity Theme – Alternative Energy” and “Equity Theme – Infrastructure” categories.
Unveiled on 4 March 2021, these prestigious awards recognise fund managers’ consistent risk-adjusted performance, based on a methodology focused on investors’ real needs that makes all the more sense in challenging times like 2020.
Managed by Martina Turner, the Accessible Clean Energy fund invests in companies worldwide across the entire clean energy value chain, in industries such as power generation, technology, energy transmission and efficiency. The objective of climate change mitigation is core to the strategy, delivering both positive impact and attractive financial returns.
The Infrastructure Securities fund managed by Mark Ebert invests in listed companies worldwide involved in building, maintaining and operating infrastructure, with a focus on social infrastructure, communications, transportation, energy, water and waste management. It provides a compelling liquid alternative to what has been traditionally the domain of private equity, and it does so with a committed integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
Jean Keller, CEO of QUAERO CAPITAL, said: “We are very honoured to have the quality of our investment management recognised by these accolades, which are a reference in our industry. I am particularly pleased that they reward two important strategies for QUAERO CAPITAL in relationship with our strong expertise in the fields of infrastructure and energy transition. As a boutique focused on a few investment themes, we are delighted that these are distinguished for their good returns for our clients. This recognition demonstrates the validity of our approach.”
