ESG risks are a core component of an overall credit assessment
Holistic risk assessment is fundamental to any credit assessment. Well-managed businesses are less likely to face unanticipated risks, which in turn lowers the risk of default or a rating downgrade. We aim to avoid investments in companies that present higher ESG risks – those have the potential to suffer underperformance as well as present risks to the wider community.
Private markets allow for engagement and positive influence
We actively encourage portfolio companies to adopt sound ESG practices with the aim to improve the governance and sustainability of businesses, ultimately leading to better performing investments. What’s more, they have the potential to deliver value to our investors and positively contribute to the broader objectives of society.
Revolution is committed to the Principles of Responsible Investment
We formally committed to the PRI and became a signatory in June 2019.
