Malk advises clients on ESG management throughout the investment lifecycle — from asset-level ESG due diligence to portfolio stewardship and ESG data to ESG exit reviews— and partners with GPs to build tailored firm-level ESG programs, spanning policies and playbooks, investment team education, and reporting.
Malk’s ESG due diligence services enable GPs to identify and mitigate ESG risks at time of investment, as well as prepare to capitalize on value creation opportunities during the hold period, while meeting and exceeding LP expectations.
Malk’s ESG Monitoring and portfolio stewardship services protect investment value during the hold period by facilitating end-to-end management of ESG risks and opportunities.
Malk can partner with clients on all steps of their ESG journey, from program set-up and ongoing investment professional ESG education to LP reporting and navigating industry standards such as UN PRI and SFDR.
As the need for comprehensive portfolio ESG data grows, Malk has integrated ESG data work-streams into its advisory services and partnered with a leading-edge technology solution to support GPs in all aspects of data collection and analysis. Our ESG data offering enables clients to effectively assess risk and performance, drive actionable outcomes, and report out to stakeholders.
Malk’s impact services help investors identify impact targets, maximize impact through their investment strategy, and meet LP expectations by standardizing how impact is integrated throughout the investment lifecycle.
ESG Value Creation
Malk’s ESG expertise and engagements don’t stop at the investor level. Malk engages directly with both sponsor-backed and independent companies to build out ESG programs and capabilities that create value, reduce risk, and make companies more marketable to investors.
