HQ Capital is dedicated to responsible investing, which is formalized in our firm-wide ESG commitment in order to support and align our investors’ interests with those of our business partners, employees and various other stakeholders in our investment activities.
As such we are proud to be an active participant in the global discussion and implementation of ESG.
HQ Capital was one of the first signatories of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investing (UNPRI), back in 2011. It was a time when environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues had not yet become an integral factor in the decision making of investment managers or limited partners, but we saw it as an opportunity to incorporate ESG into our mission and become an industry leader on a progressively important criteria in the investment process. With the support of the UNPRI, we found many forums to educate ourselves and compare our experiences with peers in the industry. Since then, we have been working to encourage and incorporate ESG considerations into each of the HQ Capital businesses.
