We have all had a lot on our minds lately, but our national reckoning here in the U.S. is the unprecedented racial inequality that the pandemic has laid bare. No corner of society is immune — least of all financial services. The interest in ESG initiatives is picking up at numerous pensions and endowments, but how do investors handle the ‘S’ or social element of ESG?
It is with this in mind that Alternatives Watch, with the support of our generous sponsors below, is surveying investors on the successful implementation of Diversity & Inclusion initiatives.
Our aim is to gather insights from pension funds, family offices, funds of funds, consultants, OCIOs, advisors, endowments and foundations. If you are a staffer at any of these types of firms, we want to hear from you!
The survey is brief and we will be collecting responses through April 15. Your responses will be grouped by investor type/asset size. The aim is to provide a snapshot of the adoption process of putting good policies to ensuring a more diverse alternative asset industry.Here’s a link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3XNMCR8
