New Investor reports on Green Debt Fund for Wholesale Investors

New Investor reports on Foresight’s new green debt fund, Foresight Renewable Energy Income Fund, which will loan to small-scale wind and solar projects in Australia.

A new and exciting opportunity for wholesale investors, Foresight has set plans to raise $150 million. The Fund will make loans of $5 to $30 million, with each loan structured under a sustainability framework certified by the CBI and verified by the Carbon Trust.

Foresight’s Head of Australia Kim Nguyen says “the fund will be the first to pool capital into a series of CBI-certified loan and will give wholesale investors access to an asset class that has typically been available only to institutional investors”.
