CORDET awarded a UNPRI "A+" rating for Responsible Strategy and Governance

We are pleased to share that CORDET were awarded a UNPRI "A+" rating for Responsible Strategy and Governance in a 2018 benchmarking report published by the United Nations' Principles for Responsible Investment ("UNPRI"). 

This is CORDET's second assessment by the UNPRI since becoming a signatory to the global initiative in 2014. In 2017, UNPRI awarded CORDET with an "A" rating and we are proud that within a year we managed to further improve our best-in-class processes. 

This assessment by the UNPRI recognises CORDET's incorporation of Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") factors for assessment of each potential portfolio investment.

Magnus Lindquist, Co-Managing Partner, welcomed this report. "We are very pleased to have maintained top tier placing among UNPRI signatories. In addition, receiving an A+ rating is a great recognition of the extra hard work the CORDET team have put in, which further demonstrates our belief in making a positive impact through sound environmental, social and governance assessment of our investments and how we view risk and return."
