Robeco and Macquarie to close cleantech funds

Dutch asset manager Robeco and Australian bank Macquarie both hope to close what are believed to be the first clean technology private equity funds of funds next year.

Robeco has raised $170 million into its Sustainable Private Equity Fund, and expects to close it at $200 million in early 2006, while Macquarie’s Clean Technology Fund is due for a first closing at the end of this month. Its final target is $150 million, a sum which it hopes to have raised by mid-2006.
