About ThomasLloyd Energy Impact Trust Plc
ThomasLloyd Energy Impact Trust plc listed on the premium segment of the London Stock Exchange in December 2021 and was awarded the London Stock Exchange's Green Economy Mark upon admission.
In 2021, ThomasLloyd Group participated in the Mobilising Institutional Capital Through Listed Product Structures (MOBILIST) competition, which engaged financial institutions in a search for the best sustainable infrastructure proposals that can list either on the London Stock Exchange or local exchanges. ThomasLloyd Group was the first fund manager to complete this process successfully and received US$32.3 million in investment from the UK government into TLEI.
The Company has a triple return investment objective which consists of:
· providing Shareholders with attractive dividend growth and prospects for long-term capital appreciation (the financial return);
· protecting natural resources and the environment (the environmental return); and
· delivering economic and social progress, helping build resilient communities and supporting purposeful activity (the social return).
The Company seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing directly in a diversified portfolio of sustainable energy infrastructure assets in the fast-growing and emerging economies in Asia. The Company invests in unlisted sustainable energy infrastructure assets in the areas of renewable energy power generation, transmission infrastructure, energy storage and sustainable fuel production, including utilising different technologies to reduce revenue variability.
The Company aims to generate additional value for its investors through focusing its investments on construction-ready or in-construction projects. The Company only invests in such pre-operational assets where: (i) an offtake agreement has been entered into; (ii) the land on which the project is situated is identified or contractually secured where appropriate; and (iii) all relevant permits have been granted. Offtake agreements will typically benefit from long-term fixed-price power purchase agreements, capacity contracts or other similar revenue contracts with creditworthy (primarily investment grade) private and public sector buyers.
As is the case for all ThomasLloyd funds, the Company is an Article 9 fund under the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). Further information on the Company can be found on its website at http://www.tlenergyimpact.com.
