Longspur & Radnor launch clean energy index

Longspur Capital and Radnor Capital Partners have launched the Active Net Zero Clean Energy Index.

The index includes the top 50 European clean energy companies that are actively enabling the transition to net zero carbon and the methodology evaluates companies based on their actual performance towards the energy transition in a systematic, transparent and repeatable framework.

“This new index is different in there ways: firstly the Longspur Radnor Active Net Zero methodology uses “positive screening” to focus on companies that are actively working towards energy transition; secondly it has a European focus that’s more relevant for UK/European investors; and finally it is constructed with liquidity criteria and single security size constraints to make it deliberately less concentrated. This helps reduce volatility relative to other Clean Energy indices and makes it more readily investable. We are delighted to be administering this innovative index and expect interest from index fund and ETF providers alike.”
