Case Study: Cbus Super

Cbus Super’s investment in renewable energy platform Bright Energy Investments will deliver strong, sustainable long-term returns for Cbus members while contributing to the West Australian economy, creating local jobs and supporting the development of sustainable power for the communities in which our members live.

The team spent four weeks completing due diligence for this investment. This included reviewing the underlying contractual documentation for two operating solar and wind farms and two development solar and wind farms, collaborating with our investment partner, and negotiating the structure, key terms, conditions, documentation and pricing.


How the team worked together

Because this transaction was completed in a very compressed timeframe, seamless collaboration across tasks and between teams and geographies was essential. This meant we needed to be flexible and adaptable while all of us stated focused on achieving a common goal.
