GCM Grosvenor Receives Top Scores from Principles of Responsible Investment
For the third year in a row, GCM Grosvenor received the highest possible grade from the Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI), reflecting its commitment to responsible investment and business practices. The firm received an A+ grade for its overarching approach to environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations, and an A+ for ESG integration in the categories for which it reported.
GCM Grosvenor’s Responsible Investment Policy guides its responsible business and investment activities. The Policy sets forth a number of objectives, including contributing to the PRI as a signatory and promoting the PRI in the alternative investment industry. As part of the Policy, the firm considers ESG issues as a key component of its day-to-day business operations and investment processes, and reports to clients on ESG issues, as appropriate.
“We believe responsible investing creates value for our clients and incorporating such principles into our process is core to our culture,” said Jon Levin, President of GCM Grosvenor. He added, “in addition to our status as a signatory to the PRI, we will continue to help drive responsible investment practices in the industry.”
GCM Grosvenor also endorses the Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA) private equity principles, guidelines and best practices. In addition, the firm is an Influencer Member of Pensions for Purpose, an organization that helps promote the understanding of pension fund impact investing, and is a supporter of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.
