var InvestmentList = React.createClass({
  render: function () {
    var onClickDelete = this.props.onClickDelete;

    var listItems = (investment) {
      return <InvestmentListItem investment={investment}
                  onClickDelete={onClickDelete.bind(null, investment)}/>;

    return <ul className="investment-list">{listItems}</ul>;

It is as simple as using the already available InvestmentListItem global variable as the root element of the InvestmentList component.

The component expects an investments prop to be an array of investments...
