Responsible Investment Awards
Waterman are delighted that our clients Palatine Private Equity have walked away with not one but two prestigious Responsible Investment awards at the recent British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) annual summit. The awards were in recognition of how Palatine manages Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) issues across its portfolio of companies.
Since 2010, Waterman in partnership with FWA has supported Palatine in developing their Responsible Investment (RI) initiative, advising on their RI strategy, policy and systems.
Palatine PE Investment Director, Beth Houghton, says: “This was the right thing to do for us – as well as addressing our investors’ interests we are now seeing additional value in the way it helps us work with our portfolio. ESG and sustainability are such important business agendas that they can’t be ignored and have to be managed really well.”
“Working with the Waterman and FWA team has brought expert insight into a complex subject, and we’ve valued their practical approach to keeping things manageable while we’ve made rapid progress.”
