Mirabaud Opportunities Emerging Markets Fund – Geneva, Interpeace Partnership 

A pre-condition for economic growth is stability and TGM is working with an emerging market fund that supports an organisation called Interpeace (www.interpeace.org).  Interpeace is an independent, international peacebuilding organization based in Geneva. They were initially established in 1994 by the United Nations to develop innovative solutions to build peace.  They have more than 20 years of experience in peacebuilding, and know that peace cannot be imported from the outside and must be built from within a society. This is why Interpeace tailors its approach to each society and ensures that the work is locally driven.

A key source of funding for Interpeace comes from the Mirabaud Opportunities Emerging Markets Fund.  The Emerging Markets fund is a Fund-of-Funds which combines alternative asset management (hedge funds) with long-only funds (both absolute return oriented and pure traditional).  The objective of the fund is to capture the upside potential associated with Emerging Markets while limiting the downside.

Wellers Impact Property Funds – Nairobi, Education Charities

Another condition for sustainable economic growth is education.  TGM has a link to a group who are developing properties for education charities in Africa.  The first projects are with charities in Nairobi who have old offices located on prime real estate.  The opportunity is to unlock the value embedded in the charities’ real estate and provide the charities with the resources necessary to substantially increase the impact of their work by developing these properties.

The first projects were done under the entity of Truestone Impact Investment Management (www.truestoneimpactinvestment.co.uk/investments/positive-impact-property-fund/) . The experienced investment and real estate team involved in these projects has established a new dedicated regulated entity and consultancy business called Wellers Impact established in the City of London and Nairobi, Kenya.  The team has a pipeline of about 40 potential projects from charities that have approached the group which, if they all proceeded, would exceed $1bn in development value.  The Chairman of TGM, Peter Higgs, has been invited to be the Chairman of this new group.

Perryman Technologies – Australia, Renewable Energy

Technologies that provide sustainable renewable energy and assist in energy management are also key for economic growth.  TGM has been supporting Perryman Technologies (www.perrymantechnologies.com) who have developed a thermal storage battery, that has the potential to make a major contribution towards the global shift to renewable energy.  Storing energy as heat is the most efficient way to store energy.  Furthermore metals like nickel are excellent mediums to store heat.  The technology essentially uses metals together with ceramics to create a battery that can store thermal energy.  The efficiency of the battery does not deteriorate as the unit is charged and discharged.  It does not take up much space and, depending on the conditions it is deployed, the battery is expected to last over 30 years if not longer.  Also no materials are used that have negative environmental impact in manufacturing or decommission.  These batteries can be charged directly with high temperature solar thermal heat using a film developed by Perryman Technologies that reflects both visible light and infrared or using a magnetic induction charging system which efficiently converts electrical energy from the grid or from wind farms or other sources of renewable energy into thermal energy.  This technology has the potential to address energy poverty, greatly assist attempts to cut carbon emissions, and produce 24/7 energy supply globally from renewable sources.  The current units being deployed store 29MW hours of thermal energy however there are also plans to develop smaller units for households and smaller industrial applications.

TGM is working with Perryman Technologies to offer investment opportunities in Australia and the Pacific Islands Forum countries to investors.
