Since inception, Montefiore Investment has promoted the principles of responsible investment.
The integration of non-financial criteria relating to environmental, social and governance issues (ESG) is at the core of our approach. This is for us neither a theoretical subject, nor a marketing slogan, nor an issue that we leave to the auditors. On the contrary, this is part of our DNA.
Our approach consists in creating value for all the parties involved (our investors, the companies we invest in, their managers and employees, and the wider community). We aim to achieve a strong alignment of interests for all of them.
In this respect, ESG considerations are integrated at each step of our investment process, from opportunity analysis to divestment. Our portfolio companies are monitored based on non-financial criteria and are also all reviewed based on a series of ESG performance criteria on an annual basis.
Finally, Montefiore Investment and all its employees have ratified the UNPRI (United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment) and have signed the ‘Charte d’Engagements des Investisseurs pour la Croissance’ (Charter of commitments sponsored by the French Association of Private Equity Investors).
