In 2014, Abbott Capital became an official Signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
Abbott Capital has long believed that a private equity manager should be subject to high standards for governance and transparency. Over the past few years, a growing number of institutional investors globally have incorporated Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), or Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), criteria into their investment decision-making process. In recognition of the importance of SRI/ESG considerations, Abbott has developed a policy designed to evaluate the SRI and ESG standards and activities of our fund managers.
Abbott’s focus on integrity in all aspects of private equity investment and management is standard business practice for us. We aim to select managers who will operate with similar standards of ethics and integrity, because it is important to Abbott’s clients and investors, and because it is important to Abbott.
