IMPACT INVESTING ACROSS ALL ASSET CLASSES: CLIMATE ENDOWMENT
WAM is a co-founder and ongoing-partner of the Climate Endowment Group, www.climate-endowment.com. It offers both sector specific funds – such as the “Climate Endowment Run-of-the-river Hydropower Fund” with 1/100th the CO2 emissions of the EU power-sector, regular cash-flows, hard assets as security and some 8-10% expected return – and a pool of capital to be invested across all asset classes and sectors, the “Climate Endowment Fund”. The latter offers an “endowment style” investment approach, with a high share of long-term alternative investments and climate impact across all asset classes. While EU pension and insurance funds have returned around 4% per annum in € over the past 30 years, the Yale and Harvard endowments have returned some 10% per annum in $ over the past 30 years.

At peak, funds launched by WAM co-owned long-term forest leases covering over 1,000,000 hectares (or four times the size of Luxemburg), with an allowable cut of 800,000m3 and annual sawnwood production of 200,000m3 per annum. Given WAM’s founding family’s longstanding roots in a small forestry & sawmill business in Germany’s Black Forest, long-term investing and sustainability come natural to us. There continues to be deep expertise on forestry in the larger family.
