ESG Data Convergence Project

As part of our ongoing commitment to embracing ESG considerations and standards, we are proud to be participating in the ESG Data Convergence Project. This collaboration seeks to increase the quality, availability, and comparability of ESG data for private markets through the collection and aggregation of ESG data.  

Inclusiveness is part of our ethos and is woven into our core activities. The diversity of our employees is a driving factor of success and is critical to our ability to create and deliver value to our clients.

We promote responsibility and transparency through our investment decisions, business practices, and our industry affiliations.                                                 

GCM Grosvenor hosts two signature conferences for the small, emerging, and diverse manager community to further raise the visibility of these managers. In 2021, nearly 1,000 people combined participated in the virtual events.

Giving back to our communities is one of our core values. Whether through hands-on volunteering, providing financial support, or acting as board members or mentors, the goal is the same – to make a difference.

Environmental, Social, and Governance Policy

Our ESG Policy provides a framework for how we apply ESG considerations regarding
our business, how we engage with the communities, and how we pursue, evaluate,
and implement investments. It is our ESG roadmap. Employees are required to read the document and abide by its guidelines.

Employee data as of April 1, 2022.


The data regarding ESG and impact investments (and sub-strategies) presented above is based on the amount committed to and invested in investments by GCM Grosvenor-managed portfolios as of the dates above, based on the assessment of each such investment by GCM Grosvenor investment team members. The relevant investments are placed into categories that are generally consistent with the categories presented in the UN PRI Impact Investing Market Map. Primary fund assessments are based on whether a significant part of the expected strategy of the primary fund falls into an ESG category. Co-investment categorizations are based either on categories represented by the co-investment sponsor or the underlying portfolio company. Diverse Manager investments include investments managed by or sponsored by a diverse manager, based on GCM Grosvenor’s definition of a diverse manager, which is determined by thresholds of manager economic ownership by diverse parties (race, gender, sexual orientation, veterans, disabled persons). There is significant subjectivity in placing an investment in a particular category, and conventions and methodologies used by GCM Grosvenor in categorizing investments and calculating the data presented may differ from those used by other investment managers.
