Mirova offers retail investors access to private equity impact fund

Mirova, a subsidiary of Natixis Investment Managers specialising in sustainable investment, is to expand access for retail investors to its impact private equity fund.

Launched in 2021, the Mirova Environment Acceleration Capital fund qualifies as an ELTIF (European Long-Term Investment Fund) which means it is accessible to a larger number of investors, including retail investors. The fund invests in companies providing sustainable innovative solutions and technologies that contribute to the environmental and energy transition.  
To pursue its development in France and Europe and meet the new expectations of private retail clients, Mirova is opening up direct access to an investment strategy previously only available to institutional clients. The fund has a minimum investment amount of €100,000 with a lock-in period of 10–12 years. The fund offers an opportunity for retail investors who seek to optimise their returns over the long term and invest in the real economy with a positive impact on the environment. 

As an ELTIF-type fund, the Mirova Environment Acceleration Capital fund will be available to eligible professional and non-professional investors in Europe. 

ELTIFs were created to promote long-term financing of the economy by providing capital to unlisted European companies. 

The Mirova Environment Acceleration Capital fund is categorized under Article 9 of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR(4)). Its multi-thematic approach is based on five main themes: smart cities, natural resources, agrotechnology, circular economy, and clean energy. The fund also received the GreenFin label.
