We believe that businesses that incorporate material sustainability factors into their strategy, operations, and culture will outperform over the long-term.

Who We Are

Our mission is to drive increased investment in sustainability-linked strategies by demonstrating superior risk-adjusted returns in our funds. We aim to show businesses that they can create revenue growth opportunities and lower their costs of capital by leading on material sustainability issues. Through our engagement with selected core position companies, we encourage business owners and managers to incorporate sustainability into their decision-making.

We are value investors focused on long-term investment opportunities as well as opportunistic dislocations. We use environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors to source and underwrite core position investments.


Through our engagement, we aim to inspire investors and managers to incorporate sustainability into their decisions and to encourage business more broadly to address environmental and social challenges. Great businesses can lower their cost of capital by leading on ESG issues. Conversely, we expect the capital markets to increasingly penalize businesses that do not adequately address material sustainability issues. We seek both to catalyze and capitalize on these developments.

"Great businesses can lower their cost of capital by leading on ESG issues."
