The rise of ESG Investing encompasses private debt, which is emerging as one of the fastest growing categories of alternative assets, also supported by the Covid-19 pandemic: it is projected to increase 11.4% annually, from US$848 billion at the end of 2020 to US$1.46 trillion by the end of 2025*.
On top of the many already well-known attractive characteristics it presents for institutional investors, from portfolio diversification to low correlation to public markets, Private Debt now adds a new element of interest with the integration of ESG into its investment structure.
An innovative strategy resulting from the combination of a Private Debt expert and a recognized leader in Sustainable Investing, the newly-launched Kartesia Impact Fund I seeks to promote a more inclusive and environmentally efficient society, by investing in companies directly contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and supporting others in their transition to more impactful practices.
