Our ESG approach

Our advanced framework for private debt and alternative credit ensures that ESG is integrated at every stage of the investment process.

Investable universe

We define the investable universe by limiting investments exposed to specific ESG risks. Our exclusion policies focus on climate, biodiversity and human rights.

ESG integration

Most leveraged loans are secured loans issued to mid- to large-sized companies to support acquisitions and Leveraged Buy-Out (LBO) transactions.

Investing in leveraged loans enables clients to gain exposure to high-yield private corporates. They typically benefit from floating interest rates, and can help monitor risks, including seniority and loan covenants that impose specific conditions on the borrower.
