02 Governance, Structure & People INVESTMENT PROCESS

CEFC ANNUAL REPORT / 2014–15

INVESTMENT PROCESS

The CEFC’s investment process has several fixed limiting factors imposed by the CEFC Act and the Investment Mandate:

  • Firstly, the CEFC Act limits the scope of the CEFC’s investments to the clean energy sector and fixes the exposure to solely or mainly Australian based activity.

  • Secondly, the Investment Mandate requires the CEFC to apply commercial rigour, to achieve a benchmark return, to become self-sufficient, and to avoid unnecessary risk.

Within this universe, the CEFC Board sets out its own priorities for investment. Finally, the CEFC Executive and the Investment Team apply their resources to developing the best, and most investment ready investment proposals.
