About the Aluma Fund
Aluma (ALUMA) is an Infrastructure Investment Fund listed on the Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) since November 2021.
Established in 2020, the Fund complies with the recommendations issued in the final report of the Committee for the Promotion of the Establishment of Listed Infrastructure Investment Funds which was written to further develop the infrastructure in Israel, and to facilitate greater accessibility to investors from the public.
An executive team of seasoned professionals with proven capabilities in mega-project management heads the Fund. With decades of experience and expertise in the fields of infrastructure, management, finance, and capital markets, the management team has been a key player in most of the major transactions executed in the Israeli infrastructure market in Israel in recent years.
The Fund's founders are Ori Yogev (Chairman of the Board of Directors), Inon Yogev (former CEO), Muli Ravina (Chairman of the Investments Committee), Miki Zaharia (Director), and Nati Shachor.
The Fund has formulated a proprietary investment model, which differentiates it from the other Infrastructure Investment Funds in Israel, and is based on three main principles:
The Fund's management has a "hands-on" approach to target companies, which aims to increase the efficiency of the companies' operations and improve their yields.
The Fund prefers and prioritizes investment in infrastructure companies over those companies working on projects or ventures in the field of infrastructure, as the Fund believes investment of this type can generate a higher yield.
The Fund focuses on infrastructure fields with the highest potential for growth: telecommunications, green energy, and the environment.
Fields of Activity

The global trend promoting green energy and energy-saving policies has led many countries (including Israel) to offer various incentives, which are intended, among other things, to achieve energy savings. Israel is a signatory to the "Paris Agreement," within which countries commit to taking practical steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency, which is also a significant tool for meeting the reduction targets.
