Investments that are not traded on public exchanges, but are bought and sold in private transactions, are collectively known as ‘private market’ assets. These include private equity, real estate and infrastructure.
As investors often hold these assets for longer periods, and have greater control over them, they can have a powerful role in promoting the responsible investment agenda.
Responsible investment is naturally aligned to private equity through its long-term investment horizon and stewardship-based style.
A solid investment case for incorporating ESG factors, a competitive market and well-established regulation have encouraged real estate investors to implement some of the most comprehensive approaches to responsible investment.
