Greenstone Finance and Aurium Capital Markets acquire the Green Deal Finance Company (“GDFC”)
LONDON, 15 January 2017 Greenstone Finance and Aurium Capital Markets (“Aurium”) have today announced the acquisition of the business and assets of the Green Deal Finance Company (“GDFC”), as well as its existing loan book with a principal value in excess of £40m; the acquisition is being supported by Honeycomb Investment Trust (“HIT”) which is managed by Pollen Street Capital.
Greenstone Finance, which invests in organisations focused on financing in renewable energy and energy efficiency, and Aurium, a structured finance boutique with a focus on renewable energy, have acquired GDFC Services and its subsidiaries with immediate effect; the new ownership will continue to service the existing Green Deal loans and will commence financing of new Green Deal loans in Q1, 2017.
Minister for Energy and Industry, Jesse Norman, said,
"People living in more energy efficient homes can have lower bills and warmer homes, while producing fewer carbon emissions, which is why the Government has committed to improving the insulation of more than one million homes over this Parliament. This deal will help us to reach that goal."
Kilian Pender, Founder and CEO of Greenstone Finance, said;
“We believe that the concept of repaying your loan as you save on your energy bills is an excellent one and with the significant private investment that we have secured, we’re looking forward to rolling the Green Deal finance scheme out across the country. We will provide homeowners a cost effective way to improve their homes and quality of life.”
Nimesh Kamath, Partner at Aurium, said;
“This joint venture with Greenstone Finance adds to Aurium’s continued commitment to the UK renewable energy sector and, in particular, the objective of improving the energy efficiency of UK buildings for consumers and business owners alike, whilst supporting the wider goals of distributed energy generation and energy security in the UK.”
