Responsible capital and sustainability are no longer 'fringe' concepts. They will (and will need to) underpin strategic decision-making and investment allocations by fund managers in the coming decades, as the global economy grapples with the impact of climate change, other potential environmental damage, rising inequality and economic crises.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have long been factored into our clients' strategies and policies, as fund managers or investors. Now, many fund managers are moving beyond ESG screening / ESG reporting on their investments and are creating their own funds with a dedicated investment focus on sustainable investing. Funds dedicated to sustainable or impact investing are becoming far more mainstream in the alternative funds universe as fund managers respond to the concerns of investors, employees and other stakeholders.
We work alongside our clients to launch impact funds and other investment vehicles dedicated to sustainable outcomes.
Our recent experience in this field spans funds focussing on, amongst other projects, property for disadvantaged groups, low carbon technologies and renewable energy projects.
