As institutional investors’ increasing appetite to embrace and promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) within their investment portfolios coincides with a push into private markets, we have explored how they can be intertwined within their investment strategy.
We have drawn on various studies that probed DE&I in private markets from both our own research and third-party sources. We also assessed work on diversity more broadly, to gain a holistic understanding of the impact it can have on an organization. We researched and evaluated various asset managers’ private markets DE&I programs and reviewed conversations with investors on their emerging manager programs to assess how they create, implement and oversee their specific approaches.
In this paper, we outline the potential for making Diversity, Equity and Inclusion work in private markets:
The why: The case for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The what: Definitions of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in investments
The how: Putting theory into practice
