Our mission, first and foremost, is to protect client capital.
We also recognise that relevant and material ESG issues can impact the performance of counter parties in which we invest and entrust client capital.
Consistent with our objective, our process includes an integrated evaluation of factors that support responsible investing that is sustainable.
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 key driver of value creation, which is why Skybound has taken action to integrate ESG analysis across all product offerings.
Skybound’s ESG policy provides a holistic approach for both evaluating risk and identifying investment opportunities with the potential of superior financial performance.
The interconnected nature of our business, the environment, the economy and society is recognized in our commitment to sustainability.
The consideration of ESG factors is being implemented throughout the investment process at Skybound, from initial due diligence and investment selection, to the ongoing monitoring and reporting of each portfolio company.
Engaging with our counterparties regarding responsible business practices is key to ensure that their operational conduct is aligned with those of all stakeholders.
This evaluation of ESG factors, alongside traditional fundamental considerations, better enables us to understand the risks and opportunities of our investments, aiding Skybound with its key priority 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 signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)
Skybound joins over 3 000 other organisations, from over 60 countries representing over US$ 103 trillion in assets under management, who have publicly demonstrated their commitment to responsible investment by signing up as PRI signatories.
The PRI is recognized as the leading global network for investors who are committed to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into their investment practices and ownership policies aligned with investors’ fiduciary duties.
