Certior Capital signs up to Principles for Responsible Investment
HELSINKI – Certior Capital is pleased to announce that it has recently become a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). As the company continues to grow both in terms of assets under management and headcount it has decided to make this commitment to formally acknowledge the fundamental and growing importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors across its investment activities and broader corporate development.
Certior is highly committed to responsible business practices and good corporate governance and in striving to support responsible investment to create long term sustainable growth and a more prosperous world for all. As a pioneering private markets investor, Certior recognises that it has significant influence not only in its own investment practices and day to day activities but in actively encouraging both meaningful and positive engagement on ESG matters by its many investment partners across Europe.
Ari Jauho, Chairman of Certior Capital, believes this is another important milestone for the company. “We are a European-focused firm with strong Finnish roots and this is reflected in our corporate culture which is fundamentally transparent, honest and sustainable. We have always aimed to put these values at the heart of everything we do. We are therefore very happy to sign the PRI and look forward to helping to continue to raise the bar in ESG matters and in so doing to encourage the mutual long term success of our business, that of our international partners and investors and, indeed, of society as a whole”.
