11.4. Additional information. [Optional]

Our direct private equity business arm has developed a framework for monitoring portfolio companies, which is being implemented during this reporting year (2017). Our fund-of-funds business incorporates ESG considerations into its dialogue with the GPs, which is a much more effective approach in a fund-of-funds structure where we have little to no engagement at the portfolio fund level. 

PE 12. Proportion of portfolio companies with sustainability policy

12.1. Indicate if your organisation tracks the proportion of your portfolio companies that have an ESG/sustainability-related policy (or similar guidelines).

12.3. Additional information. [Optional]

HQ Capital has begun doing this as part of the new ESG framework being implemented in 2017 for our direct private equity business. With respect to each portfolio company, we will use our ranking system to ensure that each company has, at minimum, an ESG compliance system in place.
