Fair Oaks strives to be a responsible investor. We believe that investing responsibly is in the best interests of our clients, our employees and the societies in which we operate.
In order to implement our responsible investing policy, the consideration of environmental, social and governance issues is embedded in our investment analysis of individual loans, CLO portfolios and CLO managers. We believe that this ESG integration also improves the performance of our funds, as poor ESG practices are a good forward indicator of potential financial underperformance.
Fair Oaks also engages with other market participants to help to develop and spread responsible investment practices. Fair Oaks was among the first CLO managers to include ESG-related investment criteria in its CLOs. Fair Oaks has been a signatory of the UN Principles of Responsible Investment since 2016 and has helped develop UN PRI technical guidance.
Fair Oaks supports the Paris Agreement and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
