Investment Director – $500 Million Renewable Energy Fund

Location: London, U.K, United Kingdom
Date Posted: 06-14-2016
Investment Director – $500 Million Renewable Energy Fund, European Market. Competitive base salary to £120,000 + bonus. London, UK.
 
The opportunity
 
This is an exciting role with a newly formed $500M renewable energy investment fund, established by a Chinese consortium wishing to invest in European renewable energy projects.
 
The fund is managed by our client, a fund management and advisory firm with offices in London, who enjoy a broad mandate to acquire and co-invest in renewable energy projects in Italy, Germany and Eastern Europe.
 
The consortium has the appetite to accept some development risk so they will be looking at early stage investment, and potentially investments in higher risk markets / geographies too.
 
The consortium is comprised of two state banks, plus a leading Chinese renewable energy development / generation firms who already own European assets.
 
About you

You’re a high achieving, investment management professional with extensive exposure to the renewable energy sector and either based in London already, or willing and able to relocate without complication.

You have extensive experience and well developed contacts with renewable energy developers / investors within one or more of Germany, Italy, Northern and Eastern Europe – especially within wind and solar PV.

Perhaps you feel constrained by your current operation’s investment criteria, or ability to raise adequate funds, or maybe your own personal development is blocked or limited.

Either way, you’ll have an entrepreneurial approach and enjoy the challenge and flexibility of working with a nimble organisation creating attractive investment opportunities in challenging markets.

Essential requirements:
  • Extensive renewable energy investment management experience (origination, structuring, execution, exit).
  • Expert knowledge of target markets with good networks.
  • Top quality University education (probably masters level).
  • Highly developed communication skills with fluency in English and preferably at least one other European language.
  • Ability to work full time in London with European / International travel where required.
  • Comfortable in ‘start up’ style operation (self sufficient)
 
Remuneration

An attractive package will be offered to attract the best candidates. Likely gross salary range is £80,000 - £120,000 + bonus. There is a possibility of higher packages at partner level, or for Directors with exceptional value propositions.
