Since inception, Responsible Investment has been a key aspect of Asterion’s investment strategy. Asterion believes it is its duty to responsibly manage its third-party capital by positively contributing to the broader economy, the environment and society through the management of its portfolio companies and of Asterion as a company itself. To that end, our commitment to ESG management is central to our strategy and fully integrated in all investment processes and operations.
Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 of 27 November on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (Sustainable Financial Disclosure Regulation, SFDR), as supplemented by the Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/1288, became applicable in March 2021. The SFDR introduces new transparency requirements among financial market participants and financial products. The objective is to allow investors to make well-informed decisions about the potential sustainability impacts of their investments, improving transparency and preventing the so-called “greenwashing”. The regulation mandates transparency by the investment manager regarding progress in achieving sustainability objectives and monitoring & managing principal adverse impacts of investments.
Below, Asterion has disclosed information required by the regulation and provides indications as to where to find additional information on Asterion’s approach to ESG and Responsible Investment.
