Asia Pacific Renewable Energy Fund

To reach the aspirational target of 23% renewables in the region’s primary energy mix by 2025, Asia Pacific countries will need to substantially scale-up their deployment of renewables in the power sector. The ADB estimates that Southeast Asia alone needs an estimated $210 billion annually for investments in climate-resilient infrastructure—with a public financing gap of 50-60%.

Sanguine’s Asia Pacific Renewable Energy Fund is a US$250 million equity fund focused on investment in mid stage renewable energy projects in emerging markets and developing economies in the Asia Pacific region.

Targeted investment in mid-stage renewable energy projects is the catalyst to create community benefits, enhanced social infrastructure and local jobs while addressing carbon emission and climate change.

Infrastructure Protected Fund

Sanguine’s Infrastructure Protected Fund is a US$1 billion fund focusing on providing project finance and equity to qualifying commercially operational infrastructure projects with high impact for delivering community, social, climate change benefits in sub-Saharan Africa.

Our strategy is to build sustainable and resilient communities while delivering the targeted annualised net IRR in a manner consistent with the social purpose of the fund. We achieve diversification geographically through a range of projects and apply a mix of debt and equity financing over the life of the fund.

We work closely with the world’s leading institutions, sovereign wealth funds, development banks, pension funds and other financial institutions. We also work closely with the World Bank Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency on selected projects, and apply the International Finance Corporation’s Sustainability Framework and Environmental and Social Performance Standards.
