HIGH IMPACT GREEN DEBT FUND
The Artesian High Impact Green Debt Fund is designed for institutional, corporate and high net-worth investors. It invests in relatively lower risk green bonds and relatively higher risk clean energy venture debt. The fund may also invest in other green debt securities such as asset backed securities related to clean energy infrastructure projects.
The Fund targets a return of 2-3x the return of traditional green bond funds with additional upside optionality resulting from equity exposure via venture debt structures. Currently the target return is 8.9%.
The Fund’s mission is to displace the maximum amount of carbon (current and future) while ensuring capital protection and the highest rate of return possible.
The dark green bond allocation addresses the resilience of existing infrastructure while the venture debt allocation addresses innovation that will circumvent obstacles to the roll out of the green economy.
