Introducing Fundsurfer Solar

March 2020

After six months of hard work and effort from the Fundsurfer team, we are delighted to launch our solar financing options.

We have built out a pipeline of pre-vetted investment-ready solar opportunities and are now looking for additional partners, clients and investors.

Fundsurfer provides access to a number of diversified, high impact, fixed-income debt and equity funding opportunities, with vetted portfolios comprised predominately of emerging market solar investments. 

How do we work?

Fundsurfer pre-vets both solar deal flow and investors, offering access to solar funding from a blend of accredited private & institutional debt and equity funders, we work with their internal deal teams to provide them with access to our Solar Investments.

Fundsurfer's network of global investors in Solar, Wind and Tidal have a clear understanding of the challenges and complexity of financing large scale emerging market projects. We are now working with the worlds leading impact and ESG focused investors.

What we do with Solar 

Fundsurfer recently created the Trillion Fund Group, our dedicated impact and ESG investment team and division, focused on providing large scale financing options for cities and countries in emerging and frontier markets.

Who we are

Our renewable energy team and partners are made up of industry experts in financing solar projects in Sub Saharan Africa, US, Europe and Asia. We want to help support the continuing growth of solar in Africa and our focus is on helping provide an alternative to fossil fuel-derived energy. 

We have built a strong international network and eco-system of investors, operators, financiers, ministers, mayors, cities and countries to fully make use of our knowledge and expertise in providing funding and capital solutions.

Our investors are all interested in reviewing strong investment opportunities and we provide a dedicated deal origination service to them directly. 

Why work with Fundsurfer and the Trillion Fund Group? 

It can be a real challenge to find and secure either deal flow or investors for solar, especially when operating in different countries around the world with different sets of issues that have to be overcome. Fundsurfer, along with our core investment partners and expert advisors provide access to both the capital and industry expertise needed to scale up Solar projects.

We help to manage the relationship and communications between investors seeking investment opportunities and the cities and countries in emerging markets that are looking for funding.

There is still a lot of work to do, to unlock fully scalable funding options for Africa, however, we have built out the relationships and knowledge required to access both private and institutional investor groups who can deploy the capital needed in a sustainable way, which can fundamentally change the outlook for a city or country looking to Solar for their energy needs.
