ESG factors are considered at all stages of an investment - pre and post investment. BCI considers ESG factors when performing due diligence on a potential investment. Such issues will affect attractiveness of the opportunity, valuation and strategy, as BCI believes that ESG factors impact long-term returns. BCI will continue to track certain ESG indicators during its ownership, on a case-by-case basis.
During ownership, we require quality information to make good investment decisions and by owning a company directly we can influence its governance and operational practices.
