Emergence techs for good made eligible for the Tibi initiative to finance the 4th industrial revolution

This qualification allows institutional investors involved in the Tibi initiative to diversify their Tech allocation by accessing smaller and newer funds while implementing an ambitious responsible approach.

Paris, 2 December , 2022 – Emergence and NewAlpha Asset Management, the fund’s delegated manager, announce that the Emergence Techs for Good [1] fund has been made eligible for investment by the technical committee of the 23 institutional investors involved in the Tibi initiative ‘Financing the Fourth Industrial Revolution’.

Emergence techs for good is a multi-manager investment vehicle managed by NewAlpha Asset Management that offers institutional investors diversification of their technology equity allocations and access to the outperformance potential of French-based entrepreneurial asset management companies.

This 5th sub-fund of the Emergence fund is in line with the guidelines recommended in the report from Philippe Tibi [2] to invite French institutional investors to devote a larger share of their allocations to the development of global tech funds, allowing the structuring in France of a leading expertise in the financing of technology companies.

With two additional allocations in progress, the portfolio presents a diversified profile in terms of themes, geographical exposure, and market capitalization.

Investments made by Emergence Techs for Good over a 4-year period support the development of technology funds of French entrepreneurial asset management companies. To be selected, asset management companies must have teams of experienced analysts and managers in this segment and have a sustainable development approach that places the search for social and environmental impact at the heart of their investment strategies.

Launched in April 2022, Emergence Techs for Good raised €100 million from French institutional investors. Emergence and NewAlpha now aim to raise an additional €200 million, which can be invested in the funds already selected and other attractive vehicles qualified to the Tibi initiative.

In line with the SICAV’s mission, Emergence Techs for Good enables institutional investors to have a positive impact on the development of the ecosystem of listed tech funds in France.
