For HgCapital, responsible investing means growing sustainable businesses which are great employers, have low environmental impacts and are good corporate citizens whilst generating superior risk adjusted returns for the millions of pensioners and savers who are invested with our clients.
Through our investments we create quality jobs in sectors with low carbon emissions and generate value through revenue growth over the long-term. We want the businesses we invest in to be genuinely focused on doing well for all stakeholders (employees, customers, suppliers and other partners as well as shareholders). We firmly believe that businesses that behave this way generate superior long term performance.
We have created an award-winning Framework for looking at the ways the businesses we invest in can be more responsible and how we can help them. We also use this framework to assess businesses both before and during our ownership. To support this approach we have developed a suite of KPIs and monitoring systems across our portfolio.
