Funds Management

Experienced managers of
institutional funds

RFC Ambrian Funds Management is a manager of institutional funds with multi-strategy portfolios which target high conviction opportunities across:

  • Critical Minerals – High-conviction exposure to metals and mining assets which are positioned to benefit disproportionately from decarbonisation.
  • Decarbonisation Technology – Early-stage investments in emerging technologies with high potential to add value in a carbon constrained paradigm.

RFC Ambrian is uniquely positioned to capitalise on the critical minerals and decarbonisation technology thematic. We have an extensive history of investment and advisory in the natural resources sector and a track record of investment in disruptive, early-stage technology investments in heavy industries.

Funds management purpose


Increasingly ambitious national emissions reductions policies, net zero alliances and corporate net zero emissions pledges are creating significant market tailwinds for the decarbonisation thematic. Despite meaningful progress being made, decarbonisation is still in its infancy and substantial technology and materials supply gaps exists.

The Manager’s purpose is to deliver impact investments which responsibly contribute to decarbonisation, whilst earning superior risk adjusted returns. Managed funds will be invested in high-conviction exposure to critical minerals and technologies which are positioned to benefit disproportionately from the decarbonisation thematic.


  • Critical Minerals – A combination of structural and cyclical drivers are pointing towards a new commodities super-cycle for critical minerals. The decarbonisation thematic is creating new uses and massive demand growth for critical minerals. Geopolitical developments are also reshaping supply chains. Against a backdrop of relative underinvestment in recent years, the outlook for responsibly sourced critical minerals is bright.

  • Decarbonisation Technology – The decarbonisation thematic will be underpinned by a transition from existing fossil fuel-based energy technologies, to new low emissions technologies. As industrial emitters exhaust low hanging, easy-to-abate emissions, they will need to turn to new technologies that address hard-to-abate processes in order to meet net-zero commitments. The demand for critical minerals will also require new technologies to enable the critical minerals supply 
chain to deliver.
