We act as
Alto Partners is highly committed to promoting ESG at the portfolio company level, enabling portfolio companies to grow their businesses to create value over time. Alto Partners considers the private equity value creation model to go beyond operations in traditional financial terms, including the way portfolio companies use natural and human capital. Alto Partners’ approach requires portfolio companies to act with a sense of responsibility and comply with ESG standards. Alto Partners’ commitment is to define, promote and monitor the implementation of corresponding policies at the portfolio company level. The firm’s investment strategy, based on a majority ownership or a controlling minority, active hands-on management and long-term approach, places it in a unique position to influence all aspects of its portfolio companies’ operations, decisions, and practices.
Commensurately, it requires a high level of commitment and monitoring by Alto Partners’ entire team. Alto Partners believes the effort to be essential, in that its accountability and reputation as a private equity fund manager relies greatly upon its capacity to share, adopt, and maintain such an approach. To this end, Alto Partners has selected ERM, one of the leading providers of environmental, health, safety, risk, and social consulting services with an established market presence in private equity, both globally and in Italy.
In line with establishing a responsible investment approach, Alto Partners is aligned with the requirements of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), EU Regulation 2019/2088.
The Alto Capital V fund is regulated by Article 8 of the SFDR Regulation, while the Alto Capital IV fund is regulated by Article 6 of the SFDR Regulation.
