Investing with Carbon Equity
Carbon Equity only offers top-tier private market funds with a focus to decarbonise the planet. We pool investments through our Carbon Equity investment vehicles. This means that all cash transfers, fees and expenses are paid through our investment vehicles. Carbon Equity represents you as an investor towards the underlying funds. To ensure secure and efficient fund investment & management we work with best in class partners such as Trustmoore, Finnius, Zuidbroek and Amstone.
Carbon Equity offers Portfolio Funds and Direct Funds. Our Portfolio Funds invest in a set of 8-15 climate private equity funds, with the goal of creating a diversified investment product. Our Direct Funds invest in a single fund, allowing you to build your own portfolio.
Crowdfunding platforms enable you to invest in single companies. Typically, you must do your own homework on the opportunity. The risk of a single company failing is very high — hence the risk of crowdfunding is typically very high.
Carbon Equity allows you to invest in private equity funds, which are generally more diversified, curated and professionally managed compared to crowdfunding.
Diversified: Crowdfunding platforms raise money for individual startup companies. Carbon Equity funds invest in many startups at the same time.
Curated: Crowdfunding requires investors to research and select companies themselves. Carbon Equity does this for you, with its experienced investment team.
Professionally managed: Carbon Equity and the investment teams within the private equity funds leverage professional resources and expertise to ensure companies get the help needed to grow.
When you invest in the stock market, you are investing public companies. A public company is one that has held an initial public offering (first sale of stock to the public) and whose shares can be bought, sold or traded on a stock exchange.
Carbon Equity focuses on private equity, which is an asset class focused on acquiring ownership stakes (equity) in privately held companies (i.e. not listed on a stock exchange). The investment horizon, cash flows and other investing dynamics are different within private equity compared to stock marketing investing. You can read more about that in the how it works section below.
