Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Issues

Fiera Private Debt has adopted an environmental, social and governance (ESG) policy based on four principles: accountability toward our investors and stakeholders, impact on our long-term performance, cooperative approach individually adapted to each loan and high ethical standards.

ESG factors are woven into our fund management approach in order to mitigate risk and support the creation of stable value for the long term. Fiera Private Debt has the capacity to identify, assess and manage the ESG factors that are essential to securing and preserving our social licence to operate and our capacity to deploy capital. The company has made this policy an integral part of our business development process, our due diligence process and our loan approval process, providing a much clearer vision of the risk-return profile of every funding opportunity.
