Learning from Experience ꟷ Making Better Use of ESG Data in Private Markets
Many investors are making significant strides in integrating ESG factors into their public markets portfolios. However, despite a rapid rise in allocations to private markets, alternative assets remain a more challenging domain for responsible investors.
Recently, Rick Lacaille, our global head of ESG, sat down with Queensland Investment Corporation’s (QIC) head of responsible investment, Kate Bromley, to discuss the complexity of ESG data for private market investments.
Kate shared QIC’s approach to sourcing and applying ESG data across their portfolio. The conversation also focused on how specialist alternative investment managers like QIC are approaching the transition to a low carbon economy, understanding stranded asset risk, and how data has helped QIC achieve a more accurate asset-level view of ESG risks and performance across private market assets.
