Sustainable investing is attracting strong support

Jim Totty and Richard Burrett

PE can drive sustainable investment because as an asset class it gives the investor more ability to target businesses that deliver positive impact. PE fund managers have a focused hands-on active management style, and a greater ability to work with and develop the management teams of the companies in their portfolio.

They have a long term horizon for their shareholding, and they manage for long term sustainable value which builds trust between manager and investor.

Investors looking for a long term relationship built on responsibility and trust with their fund managers should seek those offering ESG integration. Sustainable investing offers a winning
combination of profit and purpose.
