Strategy & Governance


Indirect Private Equity


We believe all people, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity or nationality, are deserving of respect, inclusion, safe work environments and basic human rights. In our investment process, we evaluate and consider several criteria, including: Employee diversity, workplace conditions, supply chain practices, consumer protections and broader societal impacts. Furthermore, given the risks they pose to our neighbors around the world, we do not directly invest in companies with products or services related to controversial weapons (defined as chemical/biological, nuclear, cluster munitions and landmines), abusive lending practices or companies that could support child labor, human trafficking or forced labor across our commingled products. 

Investing Responsibly

Our Social Policy Statement

Paul Yett, Director of ESG & Sustainability

“Diversity is something that has been talked about throughout my 25-year career in the industry. After decades of talk and some limited action, I am more optimistic today that real change is coming. I believe we are living through a moment that people will look back on as a genuine turning point, and a real shift in national consciousness. There is still anger, but there is also determination for change. It is impressive and it is powerful.”
