ESG in alternative investments: Perspectives on aligning interests, reporting, and building a true ESG commitment
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.

- Colin Etnire, Head of ESG, BC Partners
