Worthwhile Capital Partners: Best ESG Specialist Fund Solutions Europe 2022

Worthwhile Capital Partners

As suggested by the name, Worthwhile Capital Partners only pursues investments that deliver worthwhile impact, and the firm rejects opportunities that do not align with its ethos. The firm believes in the transformational power which connects institutional capital with sustainable investment opportunities that support our planet, society and economy. Of the 60 fund managers that approached the firm in 2022, 95 percent did not pass the firm’s due diligence process for risk, return and sustainability. Worthwhile Capital Partners is not interested in opportunistic solutions; it seeks to partner with fund managers who are fully committed to protecting and preserving the planet. Impact targets must be identified, monitored, measured, and reported back to investors. Worthwhile Capital Partners’ hard-line sustainability focus and thematically identified investment thesis have helped build a reputable brand in short time and most of the managers that the firm represents come from the US, Australia and Europe. Since its launch in 2018, this winner has raised $1.2bn for renewable energy investing, avoiding more than 50 million tons of CO2 emissions. The team has been particularly successful in supporting fund manager first closes, where it has dominated capital commitments, driving momentum for the remainder of the fundraising period. The firm’s strengths are its independence, thematic approach, and conviction-based selection of partners, and it supports its investor base with thematic research. Worthwhile Capital Partners is just as proud of its selection of sustainable investment strategies as its well-rounded workforce and highly-focused recruitment process. The CFI.co judging panel congratulates Worthwhile Capital Partners – a previous programme winner – on claiming the 2022 award for Best ESG Specialist Fund Solutions (Europe).
