RWE Supply & Trading founded Principal Investments in order to develop a profitable portfolio of asset investments and company shareholdings in addition to commodities trading positions. Our extensive expertise on the international energy commodities markets puts us at a huge advantage here. The focus is on the markets, of which we have an in-depth understanding and in which we are physically active, in order to best manage the inherent commodities risks they present.
- Investments in primarily commodity-related assets and companies generally amount to up to USD 50 million.
- Active contribution of skills and knowledge of commodities trading and technical expertise to expand RWE’s market presence.
- Targeted investments in projects whose value creation is largely generated by the commodities business and less via a complex financing structure.
- Regional focus on Europe, North and South America and Asia-Pacific.
