ThomasLloyd SICAV – Sustainable Infrastructure Income Fund awarded LuxFLAG Environment label for third straight year

Zurich, 9 July 2021 – ThomasLloyd, one of the world’s leading specialist impact investors and providers of climate financing, is proud to announce that its Sustainable Infrastructure Income Fund (SIIF) has been awarded the prestigious LuxFLAG Environment label for the third year in a row. The LuxFLAG independently verifies SIIFs incorporation of sustainable principles throughout the investment process. The SIIF meets LuxFLAG criteria by focusing on decarbonisation and infrastructure investments across emerging markets, offering investors the opportunity to invest in Asia’s carbon net-zero transition.

The underlying investment strategy of the SIIF has a successful 10-year track record and invests directly in a diversified portfolio of sustainable infrastructure real assets in high growth and emerging markets in Asia.

The fund, which surpassed €100 million AUM in February, generates multiple socio-economic benefits in investee countries as the portfolio includes: three biomass and three solar power plants in the Philippines and six solar power plants in India. These projects are transforming lives and communities by giving millions of people access to stable, reliable, clean energy.

Created in 2006, by seven private and public founding partners, including the European Investment Bank and the Government of Luxembourg, LuxFLAG aims to promote sustainable investing in the financial industry in Luxembourg and across Europe. The LuxFLAG label is recognised for its high standards and rigorous assessment of applicant investment vehicles’ investment holdings, strategy, and procedures with respect to sustainability, ESG and overall impact. In alignment with the long-term views of investors, ThomasLloyd has always ensured sustainability remains a core value both at the investment and corporate level. Earlier this year, ThomasLloyd announced the 100% alignment of its current and future product portfolio with Article 9 of the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).

Michael Sieg, CEO of ThomasLloyd Group commented: “We are delighted to have been able to renew our LuxFLAG Environment Label, as further validation of our commitment to impact investing in sustainable infrastructure. Private and professional investors can now benefit from our investment expertise in the evolving asset class of infrastructure and add substantially to their ESG quotas in their investment portfolios. Impact investing is now a critical consideration for all investors, and we strongly believe that a direct strategy focused on private infrastructure and real assets can help investors meet their sustainable goals in a clear and transparent manner.”

Sachin Vankalas, Director General of LuxFLAG said: “We are pleased announce that the ThomasLloyd Sustainable Infrastructure Income Fund has been granted the use of LuxFLAG Environment Label. This is a token of the firm’s genuine impact in the emerging market space, as well an acknowledgement of the transparency they are able to provide investors, a feature we hold dear at LuxFLAG.”
