As of 29 January 2017, fund managers are invited to make themselves formally known to the International Climate Finance Accelerator Luxembourg (ICFA). The accelerator is dedicated to any asset manager interested in launching his/her first or second investment vehicle with the aim of investing in projects that fight climate change or foster the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Asset managers have until 6 February to express their interest in applying for the ICFA’s support, after which the application process will begin. Eligibility rests on the fund concept and its investment policy, as well as on certain criteria about the fund manager himself or herself. More details can be found on the ICFA’s website.
