Pantheon’s policy in terms of responsible investment is to seek to ensure that the environmental, social and governance considerations that are taken into account in its own day-to-day business are, as much as possible, reflected in the policy adopted by each of the individual private equity managers with whom it invests.
Commitment to the Principles for Responsible Investment
Pantheon is committed to responsible investing and in 2007 was one of the first private equity fund investors to sign up to the Principles for Responsible Investment (“PRI”). Pantheon believes that adoption of PRI initiatives will ultimately work to the benefit of investors.
Pantheon has an active engagement program which covers the six PRI principles, as demonstrated in the chart below.
We have a committee responsible for coordinating our internal and external efforts in this area.
Pantheon is also an endorser of the ILPA Private Equity Principles; and is a member of the EVCA, BVCA, HKVCA and LAVCA Responsible Investment Working Groups.
