The principle

With klimaVest, you can combine your investment with measurable CO2 savings:

six steps to invest in klimavest and profit from it

In addition to liquid assets, the fund invests exclusively in assets and companies in the infrastructure segment. It is based on a broad portfolio of physical assets for sustainable energy generation, such as photovoltaic power plants or wind farms (onshore/offshore). The electricity generated is ultimately sold to companies with strong credit ratings on the electricity market, via government-regulated remuneration systems or by means of power purchase agreements⁶. Thanks to fixed purchase agreements, the fund benefits from stable and predictable cash flows over many years. The fund offers investors attractive risk-adjusted earnings opportunities². According to this principle, with klimaVest, the full effect of its capital is realised in the real economy and promotes the expansion of renewable energies. In this way, the fund takes advantage of the investment opportunities of a future-proof market segment and at the same time makes measurable contributions as part of an environmentally-friendly energy transition.

The most important questions about klimaVest

What is an ELTIF?

ELTIFs (European Long-Term Investment Funds) are innovative financial instruments for long-term investments in infrastructure projects. ELTIFs open up new asset classes for private investors, as well as future-oriented growth markets that offer attractive return opportunities while strengthening the real economy.

In particular, the protection of investors plays a major role in the statutory ELTIF regulation. This should be ensured with the help of product transparency and appropriate investment information. ELTIFs are obliged to operate in accordance with clear legal framework conditions. In order to acquire klimaVest units and book them into a custody account, investors must participate in a prior investment consultation.

What are the potential returns of klimaVest?

klimaVest has a diversified portfolio of physical assets. As a result, the fund is largely independent of the stock market and has predictable cash flows thanks to constant income and long-term purchase agreements. The target return is 3.5 – 4.5% p.a².

What are the risks of the fund?

As wind farms and photovoltaic systems depend on certain weather conditions, certain losses can occur if they are not used for a longer period of time. Furthermore, the value of the assets may fluctuate and there may be no distributions due to lack of liquidity.

You can find an overview of the opportunities and risks here.

How are the costs broken down?

The total expense ratio³ consists of fund management costs (max. 1.8% p.a.) and custody fees (max. 0.025% p.a.). When you buy your klimaVest units, a one-off initial charge of max. 5% will also be charged.⁴

Are there notice and minimum holding periods?

For amounts up to 500,000 euros, no notice or minimum holding periods apply. Investors can redeem their units on any trading day. For redemptions in excess of 500,000 euros, a notice period of 12 months applies.⁵

Who can invest in klimaVest?

The units of the fund are distributed to professional investors, semi-professional investors and retail investors as defined by Section 1(19) Nos. 31, 32 and 33 of the German Investment Code (KAGB), which meet the requirements of a qualified investor.

This makes klimaVest one of the first ELTIFs for private investors. An investment consultation (adequacy and suitability assessment) and a minimum investment amount of 10,000 euros, which may not amount to more than 10% of the investable private assets, are required to invest.
