As a market leader with a strong presence in the "NE&M" Region (Northern England & the Midlands), we place significant emphasis on the Firm's environmental, social & corporate governance credentials. The Firm commits both energy & resource to ensuring that we are the private equity partner of choice in the NE&M Region. We believe that the essential elements in creating a successful & sustainable business platform involve taking a long term approach to investee companies, maintaining & developing the strong relationships that have built over the Partners' significant operating history, & creating an atmosphere of openness & transparency with key stakeholders. Our RI Policy stretches across positive & negative ESG screening & due diligence, to portfolio monitoring & exit. The breadth, depth & quality of these standards is the subject of a continual improvement program, drawing on the benefit of ESG-related research & best practice that is available via the PRI & our position Chairing the BVCA's Responsible Investment Advisory Group ("RIAG"). We have a firm belief that our active management approach surrounding ESG contributes to the development of enduring businesses & relationships that we can be proud of, which in turn, will deliver sustainable returns to our LPs.
