Key ESG takeaways from Bain

ESG investing is on the up, according to Bain & Co; PEF releases white paper on fund administration tech.

ESG: Here we have some key takeaways and charts from Bain & Co’s recent Global Private Equity Report 2020. Though many US firms are still on the fence about the benefits of implementing an environmental, social and governance investment policy, Bain’s report illustrates strong growth, and an increasing belief on the part of LPs that ESG can not only mitigate risk, but generate alpha and contribute to overall investment performance.
