The renewable factor

Why solar is now a solid investable asset class

Political and community support for climate change technologies is now unprecedented. With a new asset class between cash (lowest risk) and equities (highest risk) emerging, choosing socially responsible investments may be as good for your conscience as they are a worthwhile investment. Alex MacLachlan discusses why, in our view, solar energy infrastructure is now an investable asset class, with long-term solar contracts now presenting viable yield and risk-adjusted returns.

Things to think about

  • Am I taking control of my life savings today to prepare for the future?
  • Do I have exposure to investment assets between cash and equities in risk and returns?
  • Am I positioned to benefit from investments not linked to Australian interest rates?
