About us
Anaconda Invest, a Geneva-based investment management firm founded in 2009 and regulated by FINMA and supervised by SO-FIT, has emerged as a leader in the transition energy investment sector
  • Our expertise is the value chain of the global energy transition from oil and gas to renewables and new energies such as hydrogen.
  • Our clients are asset managers, family offices and institutional investors.
  • Our strong expertise in the energy sector provides them with an extensive and tailored range of products.

There is a clear strategic and investment rationale to invest in all parts of the energy market.

Many funds overlook the heritage energy market believing that it does not fit ESG criteria for investing. This is a fundamental error as renewables are being developed on the back of the traditional market.

It is the heritage energy companies which are driving the innovation. They are financing the transition to green energy.

Anaconda invests in both, supporting the transition to the future.
