Pensions & Investments | January 11, 2021

Pratap Singh, Director, Private Equity and Venture Capital Practice, featured in Pensions & Investments for an article on how alternative investment managers are advancing their ESG efforts.

Extract from the article: “ESG offerings have transitioned to mainstream from niche…Forty-two percent of the capital raised for alternative investment funds in 2019 was for ESG-focused funds, up from 33% in 2011, Preqin data shows.

"The pandemic has accelerated the acceptance of ESG offerings by alternative investment managers as they seek to gain a competitive advantage once markets normalize,"
