The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and ILX Management have agreed a partnership to mobilise EUR 500 million of European pension fund capital. The investments will be made to support the transition to more sustainable, low-carbon economies across the EBRD regions. ILX will be investing on behalf of European pension providers, such as APG Asset Management.Under the new partnership, the EBRD and ILX, an Amsterdam-based emerging market asset manager, will launch an Institutional Co-Investment Programme. It will have a target of EUR 500 million over the next five years, supporting the EBRD’s ambition to double private co-financing by 2025 with a focus on climate action.The programme offers investors the opportunity to benefit from the EBRD’s long-standing track record of successfully investing in key economic sectors across central Europe to Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the southern and eastern Mediterranean region. All investments are climate and SDG-linked while offering attractive risk-adjusted returns, combined with robust environmental, social and governance safeguarding.
