On the energy side, we work mainly with renewable energy firms, innovative, green energy funds, and carbon capture/energy storage companies. We are seeing significantly increased investment in renewable energy developments. We hire senior teams and cover CEO and all C-suite positions as well as finance, legal, risk, sales and marketing, investment professional, asset management, research.
Private equity investment is a Sousou Partners sweet spot. We have worked closely with some of the world’s largest private equity firms in executing mandates to build teams and capabilities first in Europe, then Asia and the Middle East, and now increasingly in emerging markets. Private equity has fundamentally changed the face of real asset investment by driving increased opportunistic and value-add investing, ‘professionalizing’ the deployment of capital, and pouring money into major infrastructure and logistics developments.
Sousou Partners understands private equity – how it operates and what it needs and has worked hard to deliver top talent to these organizations and expand the playing field from the typical M&A investment bank frame of reference to a much wider palette of asset managers, architects, and engineers. We have also worked in close partnership with private equity to build strong work cultures and acknowledge the power of more diverse workplaces.
