Currently investing from a £200 million fund
SEP enjoys an excellent reputation amongst institutional investors in private equity funds. Since inception we have raised approximately £600 million across five separate funds. Our latest £200 million SEP IV fund was raised from a blue chip limited partner base including global financial institutions, asset management companies, pension funds, family offices and corporates. A number of our limited partners have consistently supported us from our very first SEP fund and value our professional approach to fund management. We are a responsible investor and adhere to environmental, social and governance principles. For full details please see our Responsible Investor Statement.
Environmental Energies £95 million Fund (EEF)
We have expanded our investment range by partnering with FTSE 100-company SSE plc to raise a £95 million secondary fund focused exclusively on clean tech companies. The fund has attracted investment from four blue chip financial institutions, headed by Lexington Partners – the world’s largest independent manager of secondary private equity and co-investment funds with $20 billion under management. The syndicate also comprises UK based funds Hermes GPE and F&C Private Equity, as well as Swiss-based Partners Group.
EEF holds a portfolio of nine investments from across the cleantech sector and has substantial fresh capital available to support these companies.
