Bankinter’s investment banking arm has created its seventeenth alternative investment vehicle, structured to provide Bankinter’s wealthy clients with priority access to investing in sectors with strong growth potential, primarily related to the environment, in the years to come are and to improve the efficiency of energy and natural resources.
In a first phase, Bankinter Investment analyzes specific opportunities in sectors such as sustainable mobility, decarbonisation, energy rehabilitation, circular economy and water management and treatment, although the vehicle is open to opportunities in other sectors that fit the bottom-up investment strategy.
The minimum investment required in Ecualia is 200,000 euros, subject to diversification criteria set internally so that the client’s assets do not overly concentrate their investments in any one sector or asset.
With regard to the investment period, a time horizon of seven years is proposed, with the expectation of an attractive return for the investor, to which are added recurring distributions when the portfolio is fully invested.
The new vehicle will be managed by Plenium Partners, an independent renewable energy investment and management company. Bankinter Investment and Plenium Partners already have a consolidated track record in alternative investments, having launched venture capital fund Helia Renovables in its successive editions of Helia I, II, III and IV.
As reported in a statement, Bankinter seeks to anticipate future trends that will contribute to the development of critical sectors and activities to achieve environmental goals agreed at European level, such as the Net Zero initiative or sector decarbonization set at national level through the National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030 (PNIEC).
