New Private Markets Global Awards Winners

Which investors have been voted by their peers as leading the field in impact and ESG?

Here we reveal the winners of our inaugural annual awards. Our aim is to honour and showcase the private markets firms and investors that have excelled throughout the last year globally in the areas of impact and ESG. Winners were selected in each category by a reader vote from a shortlist compiled by our editorial team in consultation with the market.

Our awards treat impact and ESG as two distinct concepts, and therefore two distinct types of awards category. Impact investing refers to investments made with the explicit dual purpose of generating financial returns as well as creating a positive, measurable impact on society or the environment (visit GIIN to find more on the definition of impact). ESG refers to the integration of environmental, social and governance considerations into firms’ operations and investment processes.

Congratulations to our winners and thank you to all of those who took the time to submit information or participate in the vote.
