JBIC signed an agreement for equity participation in Energy Opportunity Fund, L.P., a fund of funds managed by a subsidiary of Alternative Investment Capital Limited (AIC) that invests in private equity funds specializing in the resources and energy sector. This fund is established and managed by AIC in collaboration with TorreyCove Capital Partners LLC, a company with extensive investment experience in funds specializing in the resources and energy sector in North America, and is funded by Mitsubishi Corporation, Shinkin Central Bank, some other institutional investors and JBIC.

Investment in the resources and energy sector in North America has surged in recent years on the back of the shale gas revolution, but investment opportunities for Japanese companies and institutional investors have been limited owing to their lack of investment experience in and access to this sector. Participation in this fund by JBIC, though, is expected to provide Japanese companies and institutional investors with new investment opportunities in the resources and energy sector.
