PCG AM HAS BEEN A PIONEER IN THE CLEAN ENERGY AND TECHNOLOGY SECTOR SINCE IT WAS COMMISSIONED BY A LARGE U.S. PUBLIC PENSION FUND IN 2005 TO HELP DEVELOP THE SYSTEM’S ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM.
Since that time, PCG AM has worked with various institutional investors to design and execute their respective cleantech private equity investment programs while relying on PCG AM’s broad research platform, strategic portfolio management, and diligent monitoring and reporting services. We believe that this demonstrated experience allows us to offer relevant and comprehensive clean energy and technology-focused advisory services.
As the clean energy and technology sector evolves, a more diverse spectrum of investment opportunities is being presented to investors. This trend is not only driven by the emergence of sector-focused funds, but also by mainstream funds migrating into the space. This evolving dynamic will allow institutional investors to participate in the sector through a prudent and diversified approach, maximizing the risk adjusted return potential of their exposure to the sector. PCG AM believes, given the emerging nature of the sector, as well as the limited experience of fund managers in this space, that manager selection and prudent diversification will be the key to maximizing risk-adjusted returns. Further, exposure to the cleantech sector can also provide a beneficial complement to a mature institutional private equity portfolio.
