Edmond de Rothschild AM launches energy evolution fund

Edmond de Rothschild AM launches energy evolution fund

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management has launched a thematic energy evolution fund to capture the changing mix of countries’ energy needs.

The Edmond de Rothschild Energy Evolution fund launched on 21 December 2017 and is domiciled in France.

The new Ucits strategy is managed by the head of the raw materials equity team, Emmanuel Painchault, and portfolio manager Pierre Pedrosa.

The fund invests in companies linked to the evolution of the ‘energy mix’, which the firm defines as the combination of primary energy (oil, gas, coal, nuclear, hydro-power and renewable energies) used to meet the energy needs of a given country.

This energy mix evolves as a result of environmental pressures, including pollution and global warming, but also due to technological advancements and political decisions.

According to fund documents: ‘The change in energy use is a powerful and very gradual global phenomenon that impacts upon many sectors and not just the energy sector,’ according to the fund prospectus.'

It aims to support these structural changes by investing in sectors affected by the issue, not solely the energy sector. This will involve, for example, investments in producers of energy and natural resources required for this transition.

In addition, Painchault and Pedrosa will invest in the technologies which will enable this evolution and so-called turnkey solutions for the user, such as transportation, utilities and other areas.

Alongside the new fund, Painchault and Pedrosa also run the Edmond de Rothschild Fund – Infrasphere, the Edmond de Rothschild Goldsphere and the Edmond de Rothschild Geosphere.
