Investing responsibly

Investing responsibly

We believe that taking a proactive approach to responsible investment gives us the power to deliver more value for our investors.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are an integral part of our investment process, and we have had a dedicated Responsible Investment Officer since 2008.

Building stronger portfolios together

Building stronger portfolios together

We have worked with many GPs to develop and implement responsible investment practices and have seen our efforts pay off in the form of improved ESG integration across GPs in our own portfolio.

We support portfolio companies in addressing material ESG factors, seeking to help them become more sustainable businesses while simultaneously benefitting investors.

Going beyond our own investments

We believe we are stronger when we work together. In 2015, we were part of the working group that developed the PRI LP Due Diligence Questionnaire, based on the ESG Disclosure Framework that we helped create in 2013.

We hold foundational or leadership roles in organizations like the Institutional Limited Partners Association and Invest Europe, allowing us to contribute to best practices and a stronger future.

Growing a diverse work environment

Growing a diverse work environment

We recognize that taking responsibility starts inside our own walls. Our Diversity + Inclusion Framework focuses on increasing diversity within our organization as well as promoting it externally.

By building a diverse team and being an inclusive employer, we aim to create the right environment for making better decisions and continued strong performance.
