Satori Capital intros energy transition fund, a long/short equity strategy

Monday, April 25, 2022

Laxman Pai, Opalesque Asia:

Dallas-based alternatives manager founded on the principles of conscious capitalism, Satori Capital has launched Satori Environmental, a long/short equity strategy that primarily invests in securities impacted by the global energy sector's shift from fossil-based systems to renewable sources.

According to a press note from the multi-strategy investment firm, Satori Environmental actively manages a diversified portfolio of long and short positions intended to capitalize on the complex and dynamic forces driving the global energy transition.

James Haddaway, managing partner of Satori said: "The transformation taking place in the energy sector is creating a wealth of opportunities, both long and short, for generating returns. We believe capital markets are truly awakening to the tremendous long-term fundamentals for sustainable energy, and we feel very fortunate to be partnering with an expert who has the knowledge and experience to capitalize on breakout winners and losers in this sector."

Satori Environmental is led by chief investment officer Paul Strigler, an 18-year veteran of the industry with highly specialized knowledge and relationships, said the release.

Strigler has been exclusively focused on renewables and various sub-sectors since its public markets debut. In June 2009, he helped launch what would become the longest-tenured renewables-dedicated hedge fund in the world. Over his 12-year tenure, that fund delivered strong, industry-leading absolute returns and significantly outperformed sector benchmarks, claimed the company.

"As far as we can ascertain, Paul Strigler's longevity in this sector is unmatched," said Haddaway. "As he likes to put it, he's been doing this since it was just him and a couple of guys in Birkenstocks walking conference floors. Paul's focus, experience, and expertise are key differentiators in this complex sector, a space where many investors who have dabbled in it have failed to generate strong returns. Paul has tracked, studied, and invested in this sector since before most investors knew it existed."

Satori Environmental's actively managed, long/short strategy is designed to strategically capitalize on the most important megatrends in the energy transition landscape. Its portfolio of the long, medium, and short-term investments is diversified across a universe of more than 280 publicly traded companies comprising approximately $2.4 trillion of market capitalization.

Strigler partnered with Satori to launch Satori Environmental after years of mutual acquaintance. Through the partnership, Satori - a well-established firm with more than $1.25 billion in assets under management and a substantial team of professionals - efficiently manages all non-investment-related activities so that Strigler can focus exclusively on the investment portfolio.

The release said that Satori's private equity business partners with leadership teams of companies with $5 million to $50 million of EBITDA that operate with a long-term perspective, commit to their mission or purpose, and create value for all stakeholders.

Satori's alternatives investment platform, Satori Alpha, creates and manages customized portfolios designed to meet the unique objectives of sophisticated private investors, family offices, and institutions, it said.
