The Solanas ESG Sustainability UCITS Fund is a low net L/S Equity strategy with an absolute return focus that deploys capital primarily across alternative energy, sustainable resources, energy efficiency and technology, mobility, water infrastructure, vertical farming, and recycling companies through a fundamental bottom-up approach, combined with a top-down macro view. 

The strategy seeks to capitalize on the secular shift towards a low carbon economy and investments in sustainable resources in a L/S format. The strategy leverages an experienced team with a successful 12-year track record of pursuing a strategy that focuses on Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) considerations, combined with the infrastructure of the Leucadia Asset Management platform (“LAM”).

The Solanas ESG Sustainability UCITS Fund launched on June 28, 2021 with seed capital from LAM, to run pari passu with the Solanas ESG Sustainability main strategy. The UCITS strategy seeks to diversify its portfolio by investing across alternative energy, efficiency, and sustainable resources sub-sectors on a global scale. The UCITS Fund utilizes proprietary ESG screens that leverage in-house long-term knowledge as well as institutional data and third-party carbon intensity data providers.
