Investec has provided one of Europe’s first ESG-linked NAV facilities, to support Bluewater Fund I as it builds additional portfolio value.
Bluewater Fund I has a pipeline of attractive and value accretive bolt on opportunities, which will maximise returns for the fund.
This facility provides an effective source of committed capital to allow Bluewater to move quickly and take advantage of accretive opportunities.
The facility was implemented within a framework that easily allows additional capital to be committed over time as required.
As covered in Unquote today, Investec’s Fund Solutions team arranged and underwrote the facility, benefiting from a long term partnership with Bluewater, sectoral knowledge and deep structuring experience in the NAV and fund financing space.
