Across our asset classes, our approach reflects in a robust assessment of all environmental, social and governance risks which may hamper our ability to hold an infrastructure investment to maturity; within equity it sees us act as an engaged and responsible steward, voting on shareholder resolutions and discussing matters of concern with company boards. Our private equity team evaluates employment practices and risks stemming from its supply chain, and our infrastructure debt team funds renewable energy plants across Europe, supporting the low carbon transition.
Our investors expect us to deliver great financial returns – but not at the expense of the community, environment or market integrity.
