The Rohatyn Group is seeking to hire an ESG and impact manager to develop “new ESG and impact focused strategies”.
The new hire will “contribute to the development of new ESG and impact-focused strategies”, according to a job post. They will also expand the firm’s ESG framework and develop standards, policies, KPIs and impact metrics for the firm’s existing investment strategies and products.
TRG is an emerging-markets focused investment firm with $5.3 billion in assets under management. It invests in private equity, private credit, forestry, agriculture, infrastructure, renewables and public markets.
A spokesperson for TRG declined to comment on the new strategies, but told New Private Markets: “We continue to look for ways to prioritise ESG considerations, integrate them more fully into our investment processes and offer investors opportunities to make an impact alongside a financial return. We believe that emerging markets, forestry and agriculture, each an area of expertise at The Rohatyn Group, present particularly compelling opportunity sets to pursue these dual objectives.”
TRG raised $67.2 million for its most recent fund, an Argentina-focused private equity fund which launched in 2016 with a $300 million target, according to according to affiliate title Private Equity International’s database. The firm acquired Lazard Asset Management’s alternative emerging markets multi-manager business in 2019. And it acquired JPMorgan’s Asian infrastructure and related resources opportunity platform in 2018. This year, TRG has invested in a pet accessories company and exited investments in pet care company Pet Network International and cybersecurity provider NeoSecure S.A.
