How Limited Partners Are Mitigating the ESG Data Gap

LPs want more ESG data on their investments. Why are GPs struggling to catch up?

How Limited Partners Are Mitigating the ESG Data Gap

According to estimates from financial analytics provider Preqin, fully 40 percent of the USD 14 trillion AUM in the alternatives industry is now managed by ESG-committed firms.

Not surprising. Across all asset classes, environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are becoming more and more important to investors – so much so that, for many LPs, the availability of ESG data is becoming the deciding factor on whether to move forward on a fund, or simply to move on. Yet, even under this existential pressure, many GPs are still struggling to retool and recalibrate investor reporting and communications.

Our new report, How Limited Partners Are Mitigating the ESG Data Gap, produced in association with Private Equity Wire, draws upon the results of a new survey from PineBridge Investments of GPs active in private equity and credit for their recommendations on meeting the new investor expectations.  This just-published report provides actionable insights for fund managers and allocators on:

  • Improving ESG data volume, quality and reporting frequency
  • How new regulation is driving fund transparency
  • New environmental KPIs
  • LPs’ desire for better-focused metrics
  • ESG projections: Where is all this going?
