The Fund is managed by a highly experienced team with deep expertise in carbon pricing, carbon trading, fund management and alpha generation.
The team comprises a combined experience of more than 75 years across investment management, energy and carbon market proprietary trading and global carbon pricing policy design and analysis.
Cap and trade carbon markets are a key policy tool to reduce carbon emissions and facilitate the achievement of the Paris Agreement goals to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees. These markets place cap on total emissions in a region and the cap is reduced annually providing environmental certainty on emissions reductions. Covered entities can trade emissions allowance certificates and this trading activity ensures that the emissions reductions are achieved at the lowest possible cost.
Carbon Cap is committed to developing "market based" solutions that will assist in the capping and reduction of emissions. The World Carbon Fund assists in this objective via direct and indirect means as follows: As the fund continues to grow, it will hold more Carbon, taking this supply out of the market and assisting in providing a strong carbon price "signal" to the market. Secondly, Carbon Cap, as the manager of the fund has committed 20% of the performance fees generated to the purchase and cancellation of carbon allowances/offsets, thereby achieving a direct climate impact.
