We are committed to integrating ESG frameworks into our investment approach and engagement with portfolio companies to deliver long-term value for our stakeholders.
While we examine ESG parameters when first investing in a company, we engage deeper with our portfolio companies during the course of our investment cycle. We believe that attention to ESG principles reduces overall risk, as it demands closer attention to regulatory detail, environmental impact and social responsibility.
It also enhances brand value by shaping companies with an eye for a more ethical and better future, thus creating greater value for stakeholders. Our commitment is to increase awareness on the importance of ESG principles, with a view to securing the future and growth of the companies. We encourage our portfolio companies to manage risks responsibly and to go beyond regulatory requirements.
