Finding Leverage for ESG in Private Debt: A Conversation Between the PRI and ACA


As global investments in private debt continue to expand and play a greater role in investment strategies, so too does the interest in the ESG aspects of these investments. However, because of a lack of regulatory clarity around private debt, and the nature of these investments, investors struggle for leverage, access to ESG data, and to find sources of influence on ESG matters.

Join Carmen Nuzzo, Head of Fixed Income at the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), Dan Mistler, Partner with ACA’s ESG Advisory Services, and Marie Luchet, Managing Director with ACA's ESG Advisory Services, for a live discussion on the integration of ESG and private debt.
