Conduct periodic updates with investment managers focused on changes to their ESG policies and implementation.
Describe how the ESG information reviewed and discussed affects the selection decision making process.[OPTIONAL]
Fort Washington incorporates ESG information into its decision making for new primary, secondary, and co-investments. We assess the time horizon of each offering and determine if it is compatible with the term of the Fort Washington Fund of Funds, and have declined certain investments because their intended terms did not match our requirements. Fort Washington Capital Partners looks to invest primarily with managers that create value through engagement with and value-add to their portfolio companies as opposed to financial engineering. As such, much of our fund selection and due diligence work is focused on understanding and evaluating the manager’s value creation and company engagement and their expertise and resources in this area. We have selected some investments and declined others based on a manager’s ability to make an impact on companies in which they invest.
