Investment Officer Private Equity Energy

Private Equity (PE) is an important part of FMO's business as growth capital for mid-sized companies is scarce in most emerging markets.

The PE Energy team consists of 9 investment professionals, and is responsible for completing investments in renewable energy-focused private equity funds as well as co- and direct investments in the renewable energy sectors in emerging markets worldwide.
