Our mission, first and foremost, is to protect client capital.
We also recognise that relevant and material ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) issues
can have an impact on the performance of the counterparties in which we invest and on the client
capital we entrust.
In line with our objective, our process incorporates an integrated evaluation of factors that promote
responsible and sustainable investing.
What we do
The inclusion of factors related to responsible and sustainable investing are necessary for a complete understanding of both risk and opportunity.
Responsible Investing (RI) is a fundamental driver of value creation, which is why Skybound has proactively integrated ESG analysis across all our product offerings.
Skybound’s ESG policy adopts a holistic approach to evaluate risks and identify investment opportunities that have the potential for superior financial performance.
We acknowledge the interconnected nature of our business, the environment, the economy, and society, and therefore, we are committed to sustainability.
The measurement of ESG factors is being integrated throughout the investment process at Skybound, starting from the initial due diligence and investment selection and continuing through the ongoing monitoring and reporting of each portfolio company.
It is essential for us to engage with our counterparties and promote responsible business practices to ensure their operational conduct aligns with the interests of all stakeholders.
By incorporating the evaluation of ESG factors alongside traditional fundamental considerations, we enhance our understanding of the risks and opportunities associated with our investments. This comprehensive approach aligns with Skybound’s primary objective of capital preservation.
Skybound’s ESG integration efforts are centered around three main themes:
SIGNATORY OF: PRINCIPLES FOR RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT
Using the PRI’s voluntary framework, Skybound Capital will implement the PRI’s six principles across all product offerings:
- We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
- We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
- We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
- We will promote acceptance and implementation of the principles within the investment industry.
- We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the principles.
- We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the principles.
Skybound Capital is a proud signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
Alongside over 3,000 other organisations from more than 60 countries, representing over US$103 trillion in assets under management, we have publicly showcased our dedication to responsible investment by becoming PRI signatories.
The PRI is widely acknowledged as the premier global network for investors committed to incorporating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into their investment practices and ownership policies, in line with their fiduciary responsibilities.
