“The way we conduct our business is as important as the results themselves and is an integral part of how we define success. As a group, we spend a lot of time ensuring that we live up to the values of responsible investing, making sure that we adhere to best practice with regards to ethical standards, governance, social, corporate and environmental responsibility and employee satisfaction."
Robert Tomei – Chairman, Advanced Capital Group
Advanced Capital is driven by the belief that socially responsible investing and the consideration of the wider impacts of business is a core pillar in the guardianship of assets in today’s society as well as generally being good business. As such, values and activities are enshrined in our approach to the wider global milieu in which we sit. We see this as an integral driver of our success over the last 14 years.
We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of probity in all our activities with all stakeholders, investors, managers, colleagues, regulatory bodies, the private equity industry and the wider community as a whole. Reflecting our commitment to build sustainable investments, we adhered to United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI), the framework which allows us to further incorporate environmental, social and governance issues into our investment process. We are also proud and committed supporters of the globally renowned charity Oxfam in its fight against poverty and injustice worldwide and members of the Aspen Institute, the reference organisation for the encouragement of enlightened leaderships.
Maintaining a very close relationship with our investors is very important to us; their goals are at the heart of our strategy. To this end, we provide them and other stakeholders with continual disclosure around our portfolio investments, structure and operations and demonstrate how we work to create long-term sustainable value. As part of this landscape, we endorse the Private Equity Principles of the Institutional Limited Partners Association (ILPA), the leading private equity investors’ organisation which encompasses the largest most sophisticated investors in the world. Above all, ILPA recognises the need to establish best practices among investors and their investments managers. Its principles of transparency, governance and alignment of interest have been accurately developed with the wider goal to improve the long-term benefit of the private equity industry as a whole.
Ensuring that we stay at the forefront of developments in global international affairs and in the latest macroeconomic trends, we support The Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), a world-leading multi-rewarded Think Tank. Meanwhile, our memberships of the Italian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (AIFI) and European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EVCA) allow Advanced Capital to always keep a state-of-art domain within the private equity industry.
