Investing responsibly

Doing the right thing, the right way

Everything we do is driven by our commitment to positively contributing to the ecosystem at large, based on authenticity, fairness, and integrity.

We value ethical and commercial considerations equally to ensure we are always aiming at doing the right thing by all stakeholders concerned. This approach is underpinned by Cap10’s guiding principles of ‘People first’, leading by example, being accountable and uniting our team behind a common vision.

We have developed a Responsible Investing policy that has the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (“UN SDGs”) and 169 associated targets at its heart. The SDGs are a call to action to ensure that all people can enjoy peace and prosperity on a protected planet.

This approach is driven not only because of the overwhelming evidence that investing sustainably is a driver of long-term returns, but also because we firmly believe that addressing key societal challenges and making a positive contribution to the world around us is simply the right thing to do.

For us, ESG is an opportunity to achieve growth that is sustainable in every sense. We recognise the clear relationship between a strong ESG focus and real change within an organisation, and how it is key to unlocking the true potential of a business and establishing it as a leader in its industry.

Making sure that our actions at portfolio company level, but also in our own operations, are aligned with this vision is about doing it the right way as well. As well as having a deep-seated cultural dedication to responsible investing, we also follow the spirit and regulations of the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment (“UN PRI”).
