Responsible Investing

Transparency and responsible investing are critical elements to our strategy and success as a firm, as well as increasingly important areas to our clients around the world.

Responsible Investment Committee

All of Hamilton Lane’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts are overseen by our Responsible Investment Committee: CEO Mario Giannini, Managing Directors Ana Lei Ortiz, Dave Helgerson and Tara Blackburn and Principal Miguel Luiña. The seniority of the committee members reflects our strong commitment to ESG issues; they are responsible for ensuring that we are not only investing in accordance with PRI standards, but continue to uphold the same high standards within our own organization. 

United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment Signatory Since 2008

Hamilton Lane became a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (“PRI”) in 2008 and has endorsed the ILPA Principles. We are committed to supporting and furthering responsible investment activities and have adopted an ESG policy statement that defines our principles and objectives with respect to those activities.

Each year, we participate in the PRI’s annual Transparency Assessment, which is designed to provide feedback to signatories in support of ongoing learning and development, as well as to be a key step in building a common language and industry standard for reporting and responsible investment activities.

Investing Initiatives 

Not only are we committed to partnering with PRI and supporting their initiatives, we’ve also taken steps to ensure thoughtful, sustainable and ESG actions are a part of our business and investing discipline. Since 2010, we have incorporated ESG-focused questions as part of our rigorous due diligence and investment decision-making process, and we regularly monitor and reevaluate our investments and partners to ensure responsible investing principles are being upheld.
