Our Adviser's ESG principles serve to answer the question

What do we believe?*


Responsible corporate behavior will have a positive influence on long-term financial performance.


Our shareholders are focused on the externalities of our Adviser's investment decisions and would like to meet their investment goals while simultaneously improving the world in which we live.


Our Adviser considers ESG factors, including consulting the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board's Engagement Guide, not only in the upfront due diligence process, but also throughout the life cycle of an investment: from initial diligence; to ongoing portfolio management and construction; and ultimately, where relevant, exit.


We encourage transparency and constructive dialog within our investment process to uphold a socially responsible investment framework.


We believe it is important to align with partners who incorporate a proactive ESG strategy in their investments, offer support to our portfolio companies regarding responsible management practices, and provide appropriate disclosure to our stakeholders.


We appreciate that the ESG landscape continues to evolve and we are committed to working together as a firm to refine our ESG framework in an effort to continuously enhance our effectiveness over time.

ESG Investing Risk – Environmental, Social and Governance factors may inhibit a portfolio manager’s ability to participate in certain investment opportunities that otherwise would be consistent with its investment objective and other principal investment strategies. Underlying companies in a particular fund may not necessarily meet exemplary standards in all aspects of ESG performance; nor is any company perfect when it comes to corporate responsibility or sustainability.

All investments are subject to risk, including the loss of the principal amount invested.

While we are managed by our Adviser on a day to day basis, overall responsibility for our oversight rests with our Board of Directors. Our Board is responsible for overseeing our Adviser and our other service providers in accordance with the provisions of the 1940 Act, applicable provisions of state and other laws and our charter. Our Board is currently composed of six members, five of whom are directors who are not “interested persons” of the Company or the Adviser as defined in the 1940 Act. Additional information about our directors may be found here.

Our Board has established an Audit Committee, a Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee and a Compensation Committee, and may form additional committees in the future. Each committee is comprised solely of independent directors and the charters of the Audit, Nominating and Corporate Governance, and Compensation Committees can be found here.

We have adopted a Code of Business Conduct which applies to our executive officers, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as well as every officer, director and employee. Our Code of Business Conduct can be found here.

Our Board has also adopted Corporate Governance Guidelines which can be found here.


We and our Adviser are also committed to our community. Some of our recent initiatives can be found here:


We and our Adviser prioritize recruiting and retaining a diverse group of professionals. We believe a team comprised of individuals with diverse backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and insights is a more effective team. As our firm has grown, our diversity and inclusion approach has expanded in scope and participation to include employees from all backgrounds across all departments and at all levels.
