INDOS Financial provides a range of services for clients who incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into their investment businesses.
As a depositary that is well versed in alternative investment fund oversight, we are uniquely placed to provide value added services to our clients including:
ESG compliance oversight: As an extension of our core depositary services we can monitor compliance with mandates including ESG requirements. Coupled with our independent depositary services, we can provide a holistic programme of fund oversight benefitting managers, fund boards and investors;
ESG due diligence & reporting: In partnership with the specialist social finance law firm and social impact consultancy, Prime Advocates, we can provide an enhanced ESG oversight, or due diligence service. We draw on additional data sources to actively monitor ESG processes, adherence to ESG policies, and to provide complementary reporting services for our clients; and
Advisory: We offer advisory services to clients who want to explore ESG or impact investment opportunities and work with them to understand their ESG, risk and return requirements, and develop tailored recommendations based on their needs.
We actively nurture diversity in our workforce and provide career and educational development opportunities to our staff. We are also committed to supporting the communities that we work in and operate sustainably, ensuring that we work towards minimising our environment footprint.
We work with organisations that share our values. We will shortly become a Service Provider signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI). Our work supports financial and economic stability and we provide firms with monitoring, oversight and advisory support to support their responsible investment practices.
As part of our corporate responsibility ethos, we undertake work for impact or purpose-led investment funds, including those designed to directly address the challenges outlined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For example, we provide depositary services to:
Educate Global Fund (www.educateglobalfund.org). Educate Global makes private equity investments in purpose-led businesses to deliver strong returns and improve education delivery, initially within East Africa. The team invests into five high-growth industries: Health, Nutrition, Sanitation, Energy and Technology, with a direct impact on the educational outcomes of children and young people.
Triple P Capital (www.triplepcapital.com), an investment manager which focuses on high-growth businesses that reach emerging consumers in Southeast Asia.
