Renewable energy investment bank Greentech Capital to be acquired by Nomura Holdings



ImpactAlpha, Dec. 12 – Greentech, founded in 2009, has helped Macquarie Group, Goldman Sachs and others buy and sell wind and solar farms and other green infrastructure projects.

“We believed that there would be a coming disruption across our energy, transportation, food, water, and waste industries as the world transitions to lower-carbon, more efficient, and more intelligent infrastructure systems,” said Greentech’s Jeff McDermott.

Nomura, Japan’s largest asset management firm, will pay an estimated ¥10 billion ($92 million), to bolster its sustainable investing capacity (see, “Japanese investors push to take impact investing mainstream”).

McDermott, former co-head of investment banking at UBS Group, scored early backing from Jeff Skoll’s Capricorn Investment Group and grew Greentech to more than 70 people in New York, San Francisco and Zurich. Environmental groups have pressed Nomura over its fossil-fuel financing.

“It became very clear that Asia is going to be the largest and fastest growing region that requires our expertise,” McDermott said.
