A $20.2B Midwestern Shop Buys Across the Pond
Kevin Birzer and his team just sealed an ESG deal on the other side of the Atlantic.
The Kansas City Business Journal and CityWire also reported on the news.
26-year-old Ecofin specializes in "infrastructure, sustainability and energy transition investing." 16-year-old Tortoise started out specializing in investing in energy MLPs, but has since broadened out into other areas of what the team there calls "essential asset and income investing," offered via mutual funds, ETFs, interval funds, and a host of other vehicles. Tortoise had about $20.2 billion in assets under management as October 31 and 165 employees.
Birzer lauds the Ecofin team for the "deep global expertise in sustainable energy and infrastructure." Michelle Johnston (nee Kelly), senior managing director and chief strategy officer at Tortoise, notes the Ecofin team's "knowledge of the sector and passion to facilitate the global energy transition."
Johnston talked with MFWire earlier this year about what the Tortoise team looks for in strategic opportunities. Culture, she said, is the top factor on the list.
