AQUILA CAPITAL AND DAIWA ENERGY & INFRASTRUCTURE – A STRONG PARTNERSHIP

Established in 2001 by Dieter Rentsch and Roman Rosslenbroich, Aquila Capital is founder- and partner-owned. Aquila Capital entered a strategic partnership with Daiwa Energy & Infrastructure, a wholly owned subsidiary of Daiwa Securities Group Inc. in 2020. The cooperation strengthens Aquila Capital's position in the European market for real asset investments and opens further attractive investment opportunities for investors in the Asia-Pacific region.

Our businesses

Over the last two decades, Aquila Capital and its subsidiaries explored, projected, and engaged in meaningful trends for mankind and our planet. We have created a pan-European real asset portfolio by combining our industrial excellence with fiduciary money management principles. We are driven by our highly experienced investment and asset management teams to fulfil the return expectations of our investors. Today, the company manages wind energy, solar PV and hydropower assets of more than 12 GW capacity. Additionally, over 2 million square metres of real estate and green logistics projects have been completed or are under development. Aquila Capital also invests in energy efficiency, carbon forestry, and data centres. And more is to come.

OUR LOGO

a·qui·la

[ˈaːkvila] lat. eagle, the (noun.)

Aquila is the Latin word for eagle. The eagle stands for sharp eyes, agility, and a unique perspective from above. These traits are essential for an investment company like us - recognition of the long-term trends, active management of return and risk, as well as flexibility and speed. All in all, great features which our founders want to adapt.

The rotor, our symbol, is in fact the most abstract picture of an eagle.
