BNP Paribas Funds Energy Transition


Contribute to the low-carbon energy transition by investing in companies dedicated to finding solutions that address climate change.

Important Note:

  • The fund seeks to increase the value of its assets over the medium term by investing primarily in companies engaging in energy transition.
  • The fund has significant exposure to a single sector and is likely to be subject to a greater concentration risk and higher volatility than a more diversified investment.
  • The management company may at its discretion pay dividends out of the capital of the fund. Payment of dividends out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distributions involving payment of dividends out of the fund’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share.
  • Investors should not solely rely on this document to make any investment decision. Please refer to the Hong Kong offering document for further information (including the risk factors) about the fund.

SFC-authorized ESG fund^


We believe companies participating in the shift towards a low-carbon economy (the energy transition) could offer attractive growth potential and should remain well supported over the long-term given changing public policy, technology, and consumer and investor preferences.



BNP Paribas Funds Energy Transition invests in companies across the globe that through their products, processes or services address environmental challenges in the energy, materials, agriculture, and industrials sectors.

BNP Paribas Funds Energy Transition seeks to take advantage of the energy transition by investing in three areas that, we believe, are central to its success:

  1. Renewable and transitional energy production (decarbonisation)
  2. Energy technology and efficiency (digitalisation)
  3. Energy infrastructure, transportation and storage (decentralisation)

Its long-only approach could generate higher returns in exchange for greater volatility.



BNP Paribas Funds Energy Transition is co-managed by Ulrik Fugmann and Edward Lees, who have been working together since 2001. They have vast experience in investing and managing businesses in energy, materials, agriculture, and industrials markets. They are supported by two dedicated fundamental research analysts, as well as a quantitative analyst, and have access to the BNP Paribas Asset Management Sustainability Centre, which provides proprietary research and data.
