Family capital invests with tech and rock music superstars in London-listed impact initiative

Together with tech and rock music superstars, some of the world’s wealthiest families are backing a big impact initiative that just listed on the London Stock Exchange. 

i(x) Net Zero listed last week and is focused on “energy transition and sustainability in the built environment”. It’s the new name for i(x) Investments, the impact investment group set up by Howard Warren Buffett, Pär Lindström, and Trevor Neilson in 2015. 

i(x) Net Zero might have slightly underperformed its funding expectation when listing on February 9th – raising £10 million as opposed to a hoped-for £20 million – but beyond backing from the grandson of Warren Buffet, other investors, including some of the wealthiest families and individuals in the world. 

These include Philippe Desmarais, a member of one of the wealthiest families in Canada, Veronica Chou, the daughter of Hong Kong billionaire Silas Chou, and Aileen Getty, of the Getty family oil dynasty. These stalwarts of family money are joined by Joe Gebbia, co-founder of Airbnb, and Anthony Kiedis, lead vocalist of Red Hot Chili Peppers. Also backing the group is financier Chuck Clarvit, through his family office, Clarvit Capital.

i(x) Net Zero’s precursor i(x) Investments has already invested in numerous impact-led businesses and cleantech groups, including most recently Context Labs, an impact software company that’s been referred to as “Palantir for Climate”. Other backers for the Dutch group include Shamrock Ventures, the Disney family office.
