Responsible Investment

At Committed Advisors, we are engaged in addressing environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) issues on a daily basis. We believe that responsible investment is fundamental to creating value.

We are committed to the further development of ESG policies and procedures in a manner that has a positive impact on the Management Company and the portfolio investments. As a result, we strive:

  • to ensure that due diligence, investment decisions and monitoring for each investment include consideration of environmental, social (including health and safety, employees, human rights, consumer and community issues) and governance issues as well as the consideration of any ESG event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or a potential material negative impact on the value of an investment (“sustainability risks”) ;
  • to encourage our portfolio investments to consider ESG criteria and sustainability risks in their activities.

Adherence to such principles is required of all employees and will be considered in the performance reviews of relevant employees as part of our remuneration policy.

However, adopting a responsible approach shall not negatively impact on the Fund’s market strategy and investment objectives and the Management Company is required to act in the best interests of all Investors in the Fund and Investors in the parallel funds and in accordance with the Fund’s purpose and investment policies.

After careful review of the requirements set out in the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (“SFDR”) and draft Regulatory Technical Standards, we have concluded that our secondary investment strategy is not currently adapted to the consideration of principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors (the “PAI regime”) and the technical reporting requirements of such specific regime. We have therefore decided not to adopt the PAI regime for our current funds. We are however supportive of the policy aims of the PAI regime to improve transparency on how market participants integrate consideration of the adverse impacts of their investment decisions on sustainability factors. We will continue to engage with our partners on these matters and keep this decision under regular review.
