WHO IS OUR CLIENT
Frontier Investment Management is a Danish-based private equity fund investing in renewable energy assets in Sub-Saharan African markets, with a preference for Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. The fund manager was supported by the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) and have received a Seed Capital Assistance Facility (SCAF), funded by AfDB and UNEP, to develop investable projects.
Frontier seeks investment opportunities in the development, construction and operation of renewable energy, targeting the provision of equity for construction typically from USD 5 million to USD 25 million per project. All investments must be related to specific energy projects and assets. The Fund has a medium to long term perspective on its investments with a typical investment horizon of 5 to 10 years.
WHY WE FUND THIS PROJECT
The Funda€™s investment mandate is a good fit with FMOa€™s focus and strategy tackles the problem of a lack of investable renewable energy assets by becoming involved in a relatively early stage of development and devoting substantial time and resources to development stage assets. What is more, the team has built an extensive track record of developing renewable energy projects with their first fund, supported by a platform approach (cross-project teams organized by technology / country) with highly capable technical, commercial and ESG personnel both at Fund level and within the underlying platform teams.
