PE 04. Investment guidelines and RI

04.1. Indicate if your organisation’s investment guidelines for private equity refer to responsible investment.

04.2. Describe how your organisation’s investment guidelines outline your expectations on staff and portfolio companies’ approach towards ESG issues [Optional].

We have an RI policy for the entire pension plan. This RI policy is referenced in our investment guidelines for private equity. This responsibility cascades throughout the team and each team member, in turn, is responsible for RI monitoring.  The RI team is involved, when necessary, to help analyse risks and determine the best mitigants if the transaction is ultimately pursued. While we do not direct portfolio companies to adopt ESG practices we consider this to be best practice and have worked, and will work, with companies as they develop CSR programs, especially where our ownership stake is significant.
