ESG-rated investment firm Exergy Capital Management focused on the energy transition announces support for the RFI Summit 2019

Exergy Capital Management LLP’s focus on the energy transition together with the establishment of Shari’ah compliant strategies sees close alignment with the theme of the RFI Summit 2019 

London, United Kingdom, 18 April 2019 –The Responsible Finance & Investment Foundation and Swiss Arab Network are excited to announce the addition of Exergy Capital Management as a sponsor of the RFI Summit 2019.  The Summit, which will be held on 28 - 29 April 2019, will discuss a roadmap for creating “A New SRI,” at the intersection of sustainable, responsible & Islamic finance. 

Exergy Capital Management supports this vision as a result of their experience focused on financing critical elements within the energy value chain that support the transition to a low carbon future.  The effect on energy firms, their providers, suppliers and financiers and end-users ultimately becomes a critical issue for financial institutions that provide equity and debt financing to companies within the energy supply chain. 

Blake Goud, CEO of the RFI Foundation, commented: “Many Islamic financial institution face a significant impact from the shift to a low-carbon economy, both directly and indirectly, through the physical, regulatory and transition risks.  We are thrilled to have Exergy partnering with the RFI Summit to validate the global recognition that the Islamic finance industry is well placed to manage risks and seize opportunities associated with the energy transition. ”

Dr. Erich Becker, Founder and Managing Partner of Exergy Capital Management added: “We appreciate that the energy transition, decarbonisation and digitisation are important components of the discussions to be held at the RFI Summit 2019.  We look forward to seeing the investors and financial institutions from across the MENA region, especially Islamic financial institutions, come together in Abu Dhabi to find new opportunities to improve their management of the global energy transformation within the context of an increased push into sustainable and responsible finance.”
