Sustainable, responsible investment

We are committed to investing responsibly – it is key to what we do, and the philosophy runs through every aspect of our firm. We assess and monitor progress against specific ESG goals during the investment process and throughout the ownership period of the companies we invest in.

We believe that by investing responsibly we can develop strong and growing companies. There is a healthy alignment between the management teams we partner with, our investors and Phoenix to do this well, as we all benefit from the more sustainable valuable companies

As we work to unlock the potential within our partner businesses, we also encourage them to pursue positive environmental and social initiatives.
