Frederic Nadal, CEO at MV Credit, explains how important it is for a private debt investor to select loans with an ESG lens

  • Prior to any investment, MV Credit assesses ESG criteria (such as the environmental or pay policy) of the private-equity firm during the Due Diligence phase
  • Likewise, the Private Equity sponsor conducts a Due Diligence prior to any partial or full acquisition to make sure the firm complies with European regulation from an ESG perspective
  • Accessing ESG-related data is easier on the private market than on the public market
  • Running the risk of lending money to a firm that does not comply with European regulation may impact negatively yield and performance
