Intertrust surveys managers on ESG expectations; PFCFO on Fund Finance Friday

150 managers think full standardization could happen in three years; Private Funds CFO editor Graham Bippart interviewed by Fund Finance Friday; new home for 'Subscription credit: A shifting landscape'

ESG: Private equity fund managers expect ESG to be fully standardized in the next three to five years, according to a survey of 150 managers around the globe conducted by Intertrust. Connor Hussey has further details on that, and what managers see as the biggest obstacles to widespread adoption of ESG initiatives in private equity.

And in case you missed it, check out Connor’s story on how ESG ratings firms, which helped boost the green bond market to more than $200 billion last year, are making a foray into private markets. Connor looks at what that may mean for ESG, as well as for private markets more broadly.
