The outlook for 2017 is positive. Triodos Organic Growth Fund is well-positioned for an acquisition in the first half of 2017 and has increased its efforts in further building up a diverse pipeline of potential investments across Europe. It is clear, however, that competition for investments in well-run sustainable consumer goods companies remains fierce.
The fund aims to complete three or four investments in 2017, for a total investment amount of around EUR 15.0 million. At the same time, fundraising activities will be continued with the aim of raising EUR 15.0 million in new capital for the fund throughout the year. In terms of costs, the ongoing charges are expected to remain well below the maximum percentage of 3.50%. With investment levels increasing over time, Triodos Organic Growth Fund expects to realise a positive performance in 2017.
