Environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) factors can be an important driver of investment value, as well as a source of risk. That is why we incorporate ESG considerations throughout our investment process to generate long-term, sustainable returns.
The long-term success of ICG Enterprise Trust requires effective management of both financial and ESG factors.
Our approach to responsible investing
Our approach is defined by three key priorities:
Incorporate ESG factors into investment decision making
Partnering with managers who share a similar approach to responsible investing
Better identifying and monitoring ESG risks
