Private Investment Strategies

Diverse professional backgrounds and a flat operating structure improves the “marketplace of ideas” on PEP’s Private Equity team.

PEP’s private equity practice focuses on discrete energy investment opportunities with asymmetric returns propositions. Featuring a team with diverse investment and direct operating backgrounds, PEP Private Equity has proven a capacity to provide investors with differentiated perspectives and unique access to value-oriented private energy investment strategies. Our principles are simple: honesty, deep technical due diligence, structural flexibility, and strong investor alignment. Our “more partner, less sponsor” approach to energy investing has helped to shape our superior industry and client networks as well as our longstanding reputation for fair dealing. PEP Private Equity’s primary goal continues to be creating outsized risk-adjusted returns for our clients, alongside whom we will always invest in the PEP Private Equity strategies.

Public Investment Strategies

Business analysts focused on long-term value creation.

Our public equities strategies focus on structurally advantaged assets across an array of enabler commodities and infrastructure projects. By taking a private equity approach to the public markets, PEP Public Equity assesses asset quality and management’s ability to generate long-term value. Our strategies focus on doing well while doing good: attractive prospective returns while supporting global zero-carbon efforts.
