Tikehau Capital has completed fundraising for its T2 investment strategy focused on energy transition with over EUR1 billion in commitments.

Tikehau Capital launched this strategy in 2018 with EUR100 million from its own balance sheet. This unique alignment of interest with LPs has proven successful, attracting large strategic investors from several geographies (whose commitments represent 45 per cent of the funds raised overall).

Over the last 18 months, Tikehau Capital has invested EUR440 million in six European SMEs focused on clean energy generation, low-carbon mobility and energy efficiency.

Pierre Abadie and Mathieu Badjeck, co-managers of Tikehau Capital’s T2 Energy Transition Fund, say: “In 2019 alone, Tikehau Capital’s energy transition portfolio companies have provided goods and services that, over their lifetime, will avoid one million tons of CO2 from being emitted. And this is the just the beginning.”
