SigmaBleyzer Investment Group Announces New $ 250,000,000 Energy Fund in Ukraine
The new International Fund for Ukrainian Energy, the International Fund for Ukrainian Energy LP (IFUEL), will focus on investments in Ukraine’s energy sector. Energy security has become one of the most important problems in Ukraine over the past few years. Western capital investment and technology will be necessary to achieve energy independence. The Government of Ukraine is implementing reforms in the energy sector, which will make the business environment more attractive to foreign investors. The fund’s strategy is to invest only in attractive energy projects, with the continuous improvement of the investment climate, which is the basis for governmental reforms in the energy sector.
The first closing, which took place in September 2018, has already approved over $ 100 million. SigmaBleyzer, an experienced US investor in Ukraine, is partnering with highly-capitalized and highly-experienced energy companies in Texas to create this fund.
Based in Houston, Texas, SigmaBleyzer has been operating private equity investments in Ukraine for over 25 years and is one of the most experienced investors in the country. Since its inception, SigmaBleyzer has made over 100 investments that have been successful, focusing on controlling investments and creating value at the operational level.
