BEETLE CAPITAL is a natural capital investment advisory firm.
The term natural capital extends the economic notion of capital to include goods and services relating to the natural environment. This extension is necessary in recognising the full impact that human activity can have upon these resources and that their permanence is not assured. Accordingly, economic models that do not take this into account are flawed in the long run.
With continued population growth and economic expansion, we have reached the point where the limits of the planet’s natural capital are increasingly felt and where, as a result, what is economically sustainable depends to an ever greater extent on the efficient use of natural capital.
Beetle’s philosophy is that natural capital efficiency will be an increasing determinant of competitive advantage and economic sustainability
Beetle works with clients whose strategies respond to the constraints on natural resources such as water, energy, food, land and ecosystem services and provides specialist corporate finance, fund placement and other advisory services. The firm is based in London and has clients in Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America.
Our competitive advantage is derived from:
- a unique global network of investors, corporates, policy makers, scientists and academics
- insights into rapidly evolving sectors with high knowledge barriers
- strong track record in capital raising and advisory in real assets (including real estate, forestry and agriculture), clean energy technology and infrastructure and carbon
- experienced sector professionals
- a focus on client relationship partnerships
We are singularly committed to accelerating investment into the natural capital economy.
Our focus on natural capital stems from our belief that successful economic activities must be able to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own economic needs.
As part of Beetle’s commitment to sustainable investment, we participate in the following initiatives:
