Deerpath capital



Responsible investing is core to Deerpath’s investment strategy and is integrated into our investment process from origination to exit. We believe that a number of facets of responsible investing help us generate strong returns for our investors.

An essential part of our long-term investment strategy within our portfolio is assessing the impact of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues and opportunities. In 2016, we developed and implemented an official ESG policy making a public commitment to formally incorporate the consideration of sustainability risks and opportunities into our decision-making process. In 2017, we became a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI).
