greenValue GmbH (opm) – Green investments at a high level – 84 offers with a fund volume of 4.55 billion euros

[Schwaig b. Nuremberg, December 14, 2012], greenValue GmbH, operator of the independent and neutral information portal of the same name, has taken a close look at the distribution of green investments currently being sold. There are currently 84 investments (previous year 71) with a fund volume of EUR 4.55 billion (previous year EUR 3.80 billion) being placed.

Measured against the fund volume of all investments, closed funds account for 2.89 billion euros or 63.5% (previous year 2.48 billion euros, 65.2%) and 1.66 billion euros or 36.5% ( Previous year 1.32 billion euros, 34.8%) on fixed-interest securities such as profit participation rights and bonds. “Based on the comparison with the previous year, it can be seen that fixed-interest investment offers have increased in percentage terms. As closed-end funds are regulated, we expect a further increase in these types of offers,” explains Daniel Kellermann, managing partner of greenValue GmbH.

Within the closed-end funds, 41.6% (again based on the fund volume) are green buildings that have been awarded certifications such as DGNB, LEED, BREEAM or GreenCalc. Solar funds account for 21.7%, portfolio funds 16.3% and wind energy funds 8.1% of the fund volume of closed funds.

The minimum participation and terms of the two offer groups were also evaluated. For closed-end funds, investors have to raise an average of 9,500 euros, while for fixed-interest funds they have to raise 5,200 euros. Closed funds are designed with terms of 5 to 23 years. For profit participation rights etc., the term is sometimes just one year, with a maximum of 10 years.
