A signatory to the UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment (“UN PRI”) since 2014 (performance recognised with a consistent A or A+ rating), we have a strong commitment to Responsible Investment:
– Sustainability framework alignment with the UN PRI, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the Task Force for Financial Climate Disclosures
– 5 star score / top 7th percentile in Private Debt asset class and 4 star score / top 17th percentile in Investment & Stewardship Policy (UN PRI 2021)
– Strict ESG exclusion criteria
We find it crucial to understand the environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) aspects of the businesses in which we invest, as these represent key elements of long-term value creation – we therefore integrate ESG assessments into our investment decisions and promote sustainability by including ratchets linked to the achievement of ESG targets for our borrowers.
