Shared Value

Social consciousness has always been part of our DNA. More than 10 years ago, we moved to responsible investment, then evolving from Structured Sustainability to Creating Shared Value.

Regulation EU 2019/2088

Adverse sustainability impacts statement

We work in accordance with Regulation EU 2019/2088 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 November 2019 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector.

Sustainability risk policies
We integrate the analysis and management of sustainability risk in our investment process. This analysis is aimed at identifying the impact of these risks on a target company’s growth prospects in terms of sales, margins and future value.

Adverse sustainability impacts at entity level
We monitor specific sustainability indicators. Nevertheless, it currently does not consider the adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors.

Remuneration policies in relation to the integration of sustainability risks
We are required to adopt prudent remuneration and incentive policies that reflect and promote effective risk management and don’t encourage risk-taking.

Responsible investment

The element of generating growth.

We consider responsible investment as part of the strategy to consistently create value for our investors.

For this reason, environmental, social and governance factors are incorporated into the investment process and active ownership. Since 2009, we are long standing signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), annually participating in the PRI reporting and assessment cycle and provides regular feedback on our sustainability actions.

We have received A or A+ scores in the Strategy & Governance and Private Equity modules from the PRI since 2015. In 2020, we received an A+ rating in both modules.
This places us in the top percentile among 2000+ signatories.
