About

Arosa Capital Management focuses on energy and related sectors.

Applying a differentiated approach, rooted in rigorous fundamental analysis and deep sector expertise, we invest in both traditional and alternative energy through private and public companies as well as in credit and commodities. We manage a suite of complementary strategies that offer a range of concentration, liquidity, and exposure parameters.

Experienced Leadership

Arosa was founded in 2013 by Till Bechtolsheimer and Abraham Joseph, established energy investors who have worked together for over a decade. Mr. Bechtolsheimer and Mr. Joseph serve as sole Portfolio Managers of their respective strategies, investing across asset classes and capital structures in traditional and alternative energy.

Broad coverage of the energy value chain positions us to identify multiple avenues of impact, and thus multiple investment opportunities.

Alternative Energy Focus

On a global basis, the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy is expected to lead to one of the largest capital re-allocations in modern history.

We see decarbonization as a multi-decade mega theme with key drivers being:

Energy Security

Recent world events have expedited the critical need for energy security and less reliance on fossil fuels sourced from increasingly unstable regions.

Policy Support

Government policies and commitments at the country, regional and local level should accelerate the transition toward renewable fuels.

Consumer and Corporate Preference

Pressure from consumers, investors, and the private sector for zero and low carbon alternatives are drivers of increased demand for renewable energy.

The steady drop in the cost of renewable power generation has made it increasingly more cost competitive, to the point where several forms of alternative energy now have the lowest cost of generation for the end user.

Alternative energy adoption rates have increased significantly as a result of cost efficiency and consumer demand, currently comprising almost 80% of
global growth.
