    Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors continue to grow in importance in alternative investment managers’ investment processes, amid evolving stakeholder interests and expanding regulatory scope.

    We’ve converted the discussion into an overview, featuring insights and observations from:

    • Toby Belsom, Director, UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI)
    • Steffen Dietel, Portfolio Manager, Altana Wealth
    • Colin Etnire, Head of ESG, BC Partners
