We are market developers and innovators
Annycent Capital is an alternative investment management firm, investing in small to medium-sized (25-200 MW) renewable energy assets, mainly solar PV, wind and hydro projects, in a select group of emerging markets. Investments are designed to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors, while advancing environmental and social objectives aligned with the U.N. Sustainable Development Agenda and the Paris Agreement.
Our name is inspired by a woman in Uganda, who represents the individual and societal impact of our work.
She serves today as the CEO of the first privately built hydropower plant in her country, a project sourced and funded by one of Annycent's founding members.
Our vision is underpinned
by three core objectives:
Catalyse market sector development
Generate attractive risk-adjusted returns
Create lasting climate outcomes, with measurable positive social impact
We believe that emerging markets offer the most sustainable and inclusive growth opportunities for the coming decades.
