Our investment process

Before and during the investment period, we research the financing opportunity and assess its impact on the environment, employees and workers, communities and other stakeholders.

Our investments are guided by policies that ensure that integrity, development impact and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) impact are at the heart of our operations and that our way of working adheres to high ethical standards.

In this section, we explain the key steps of and factors that impact our investment process.
