eQ Private Equity continuously monitors investee funds and actively promotes the development of ESG performance within investee funds. Monitoring is based on investee funds’ quarterly reporting, meetings with the managers of the investee funds, annual general meetings and advisory board discussions as well as eQ’s own annual ESG query. Any failure to adhere to the agreed reporting, for example on ESG events, or slipping of standards, or events arising that are clearly in conflict with DD process findings and expectations are reacted upon. These will include dialogue, but may also result in a manager not being selected for next fund raising rounds. In PE investing ESG objectives are not practical to be hard coded, or contractually enforced, therefore, emphasis is heavily focused on pre-investment assessment and monitoring.
