Crescent Capital is an independent private equity firm with a focus on energy and infrastructure investments in Turkey and surrounding regions.

We currently have an international team of eight professionals, based in Istanbul. The team brings together complementary backgrounds in structured finance, private equity, law, engineering, and project development, with more than 60 years of direct energy sector financing and investment expertise.

At the end of 2011, Crescent Capital has launched Clean Energy Transition Fund (CETF), the first energy-focused private equity fund in Turkey. Current investors include international institutional investors, as well as local and foreign financial institutions. Commitments at first closing have reached EUR 100 million, and a final closing is planned within 2012.

CETF makes investments in clean energy projects / companies with a focus on hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass subsectors. CETF will also consider investments in companies providing goods and services to the clean energy industry.

Acting as a first-mover, we are aiming to become the leading energy-focused fund manager in our region, establish long-term partnerships, and create value for our investors.
