NextEnergy Solar Fund aims to provide its shareholders with attractive risk-adjusted returns, principally in the form of regular dividends, by investing in a diversified portfolio of primarily UK-based solar energy infrastructure assets. The intention was that most of the return would come as dividends. Following shareholder approval for a revised investment policy in September 2020, the company has the freedom to invest up to 30% of gross assets in other OECD countries outside the UK. It can also invest up to 15% in solar-focused private equity structures, and 10% in energy storage.
