Who We Are

Asper is an independent, specialist investment management firm, focused on private investments in sustainable real assets.

Backed by 30 leading institutional investors, our team is one of the most experienced in Europe.

Asper emerged from the renewable energy senior investment team of Hg, a leading London-based private equity group. While part of Hg, the Asper team helped raise, invest and manage two dedicated renewable energy discretionary funds totalling €850m AUM.

In 2016 Asper and Hg announced a staged spin-off of Hg’s renewable business, which took place in 2017. At that point Asper took on the management of the renewable funds and became a fully-independent firm, fully owned by its management team.

Asper’s team has a proven track record in the conception of investment theses, origination and execution of investments in A-grade assets, active management and value creation for institutional investors.
