Strategic Moves: Navigating Transferability-Flips for Institutional Investors

In the ever-evolving realm of institutional investment, savvy investors are turning their attention to innovative strategies to enhance portfolio returns. As the transferability market gains momentum, institutional investors are strategically leveraging Transferability Flip Transactions, or “t-flips,” to unlock latent value in their tax equity investments. In this landscape, partnering with a seasoned fund sponsor, such as Foss & Company, becomes not just a choice but a strategic imperative. 

The Institutional Advantage in the Transferability Market: 

Institutional investors are well-positioned to capitalize on the increasing activity in the transferability market. As regulatory landscapes shift and market dynamics evolve, institutions can leverage their scale and expertise to navigate the complexities of t-flips for optimal portfolio performance. Investors interested in making equity investments may enhance their after-tax returns by utilizing the t-flip structure to invest in renewable energy and sustainable technology projects. Investors interested in buying tax credits on a transferable basis can may find that a t-flip structure offers risk mitigation benefits when compared to a “direct purchase” of tax credits. 

Understanding T-Flips: 

A Transferability Flip Transaction is similar to the Partnership Flip structure that the industry has used for billions of dollars of transactions, but instead of having the tax credits allocated based on ownership in the project, the tax credits are transferred to a third-party buyer. There is still a tax equity partnership at the project level which can monetize the depreciation benefits of the project and establish a “step up” in the tax credit eligible cost basis to a fair market value.
