Video: Evaluating ESG policies

David Russell, co-head of responsible investment at USS, discusses how the LP evaluates fund managers' environmental, social and governance policies.

Limited partners and fund managers are increasingly focused on implementing environmental, social and governance policies into their investment processes and portfolio management. 

The Universities Superannuation Scheme, the UK's second largest pension fund, has been a pioneer on this front, developing its internal policies on responsible investment in 1999.

David Russell, co-head of responsible investment at USS, recently spoke to PrivateEquityInternational.com about ESG due diligence on the sidelines of PEI's and the UN PRI's Responsible Investment Forum in New York.
