ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) is a core part of FSN Capital’s value creation approach.
“We are decent people
making a decent return
in a decent way”
Our ethos is at the core of how we approach decision-making every day.
By decent people we mean people of character and integrity. New team members can only be successfully on-boarded and integrated if there is a strong cultural fit with the FSN Capital team in terms of our ethos and values.
Decent return we define as an internal rate of return, which substantially outperforms that which our investors could achieve by investing in the relevant small / midcap listed shares index.
Generating returns in a decent way is achieved by implementing the FSN Governance Framework in all Portfolio Companies, and by constantly encouraging our individual team members to challenge decisions and behavior by asking : «Is this in line with our ethos?»
Our Strong Historic Focus on ESG
FSN Capital’s ESG approach
FSN Capital applies a long-term perspective and integrates ESG in all stages of the investment process, from sourcing through to exit.
In line with UN’s Principles for Responsible Investing and our Responsible Investment Policy we integrate ESG considerations into every phase of the investment cycle.
More information about how we always incorporate ESG risks and opportunities into the investment analysis and decision-making processes can be found under “Responsible Investing”. “Responsible Ownership” describes in more detail how key ESG topics are integrated in both the strategy and operations of each Portfolio Company to ensure that they remain sustainable even after they are no longer part of the FSN Capital portfolio.
