Who We Are

Greencoat UK Wind invests in operating UK wind farms to provide shareholders with a sustainable and transparent income stream through an annual dividend on the issue price of 100p (6.16p target for 2014). Given the nature of the Company's income streams, the Board intends to increase the dividend in line with Retail Price Index (RPI) inflation. The company also aims to preserve capital on a real basis by reinvesting excess cashflow in additional operating UK wind farms and through prudent use of portfolio leverage.

The Company offers exposure to UK wind generation through a premium listed vehicle. Greencoat UK Wind is fully invested solely in operating UK wind farms which are currently producing income.

Greencoat UK Wind was the first renewable infrastructure fund to list on the LSE main market and is the only infrastructure fund or renewable infrastructure fund domiciled in the UK. Greencoat UK Wind is incorporated in England and Wales, and is a UK Investment Trust.

The Company is managed by an experienced team of senior executives from Greencoat Capital LLP, the cleantech and renewables focused investment management firm, and overseen by a strong and experienced independent board of directors, all of whom are based in the UK.

Greencoat UK Wind has a broad investor base that includes numerous blue-chip institutional investors and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

Greencoat UK Wind plc currently conducts its affairs so that its Ordinary Shares (the "Shares") can be recommended by independent financial advisers ("IFAs") to retail private investors in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

The Company is a UK plc and has been approved as an investment trust and, accordingly, the Shares are excluded securities for the purposes of the FCA's restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products since they are shares in an investment trust.

The Company is an alternative investment fund or "AIF" for the purposes of The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Regulations 2013 and has appointed Greencoat Capital LLP as its alternative investment fund manager and Heritage Depositary Company (UK) Limited as its depositary.  Each of Greencoat Capital LLP and Heritage Depositary Company (UK) Limited are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
