ESG forms a key factor in the identification of investments and due diligence processes, demonstrating that The Pallinghurst Group takes seriously responsibilities regarding health and safety, environmental impact, community support (via social and economic development) and people within its investment portfolio.
The Pallinghurst Group is a signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (the “Principles” or “UN PRI”), committing to a more sustainable and transparent global financial system, whilst also supporting environmental and social issues.
There are six Principles put together by the investment community, covering the inclusion of ESG issues being factored into investment analysis, ownership policies and practices as well as disclosures on ESG issues by companies into which investments are made. Working with the UN PRI to enhance the ongoing effectiveness of these Principles and signatories reporting annually on their activities and progress are also covered by the Principles.
The Pallinghurst Group’s advisor (Pallinghurst Advisors LLP) is a authorised and regulated firm with the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority, ensuring robust principles and regulatory reporting is followed across The Pallinghurst Group, including anti-bribery and corruption policies and procedures, Common Reporting Standard (“CRS”) reporting and Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) reporting (where applicable).
