Sustainable Investing

Sustainability Risk Management

Sustainability risks are found in every investment but rarely are they fully identified, managed and mitigated. This is even more important in Environmental, Ethical and Clean Technology funds where expectations are highest.

  • Identifying, planning for and managing the risk exposure arising from a PE portfolio is fundamental in maximising shareholder value and corporate performance.

  • As with all risks, there are also opportunities that can be realised and value created – e.g. additional revenue streams, reduced costs and brand value.

  • We identify and prioritises all aspects of sustainable risk associated with a portfolio and provide mitigation through a combination of proactive management and practical technical modifications.

  • We also recognise the various stakeholders within portfolio management and work with them to ensure that they receive the data they require. 

  • We can assess investee performance against international lending criteria such as the Equator Principles, IFC, ADB and World Bank guidelines.
