Access to a pipeline of diversified investments

Downing’s ability to construct diversified portfolios is underpinned by a large pipeline of attractive lower mid-market investment opportunities. This part of the market offers a compelling opportunity versus the larger end of the market, as quality assets are typically accessible through less competitive processes and carry lower levels of leverage.  

Our diversified portfolios incorporate multiple generation technologies across different regions, as well as the option to include both operational, construction-ready and development-stage assets. Such diversification helps mitigate the intermittent generation profiles of individual portfolio assets and creates a more consistent set of cash flows for the aggregate portfolio. This increased revenue stability is particularly compelling for investors seeking to invest in renewables to achieve a consistent return over time.

A further benefit of this approach is the mitigation of region-specific regulatory and policy risks that might arise over the life of an investment mandate, as well as the ability to tactically adjust the investment focus over time to take advantage of opportunities that present themselves.

Faced with rapidly changing energy markets, we believe our access to a wide range of opportunities, coupled with our portfolio construction expertise provides investors with valuable optionality.
