Impactful Investing is described as follows in our presentation:
[*] The firm has signed up to membership of GIIN (Global Impact Investing Network), has become a signatory of PRI (UN Principles for Responsible Investment), and applies Impact Reporting and Investment Standards (IRIS), a set of metrics that can be used to measure and describe an organization‘s social, environmental and ﬁnancial performance. We believe that promoting diversity in leadership teams contributes to good governance. It encourages different ideas, open-mindedness and therefore innovation. We are convinced that diversity leads to better operational and financial performance.
[*] We install Social & Environmental Management Systems (SEMS) into the investment cycle with each investment.
[*] We conduct an exhaustive background due diligence and compliance exercise (including Know Your Client (KYC), AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and CTF (Counter Terrorist Financing) a process which is vetted and signed off by the ﬁrm’s external compliance ofﬁcer.
[*] We actively imbed governance protocols within our managed investments through the establishment of several formal layers of management, including senior management committees, executive committees and an active board of directors
