You are in Direct – Private Equity » Overview


PE 01. Description of approach to RI

01.1. Provide a brief overview of your organisation’s approach to responsible investment in private equity.

ESG matters are always a part of the investment process; tools and checklists for identifying need for more detailed DD are in place and most significant opportunities and/or risks need to be identified on the investment memorandum. During holding period, portfolio-level questionnaires are done annually and the case teams monitor the performance of individual portfolio companies in more detail through the Board. Any incidents, as well as general performance, are reported to fund investors.

PE 02. Investment guidelines and RI

02.1. Indicate whether your organisation’s investment activities are guided by a responsible investment policy / follow responsible investment guidelines.

02.2. Describe how your organisation outlines expectations on staff and portfolio companies’ approach towards ESG issues in investment activities.

As outlined in CapMan’s Code of Conduct, the staff is expected to act in line with company’s commitment to the principles of responsible investment (as stated in CapMan’s Sustainable Investment Policy) at every stage of investments – always aiming to be a value adding active owner who is dedicated to build successful and long-lasting businesses in a sustainable manner.

CapMan requires that all the funds’ portfolio companies comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations. In addition, each portfolio company draws up a programme to ensure that good corporate governance principles are followed. Requirements and expectations may vary with respect to other ESG aspects depending e.g. on sector, geography and business model of the portfolio company in question. CapMan takes immediate actions if any critical ESG issues arise concerning the portfolio companies during the ownership period.
