Our Engagement with Like-minded Investors and Counterparts

ESG workshop

We host annual ESG workshops to share ESG practices and market developments. In 2022, we successfully hosted our fourth annual ESG Workshop with nine participating private market institutions comprising GPs, limited partners and corporates, sharing good ESG practices and promoting sustainable investment opportunities in the Asia Pacific and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Engagement with market counterparts

We have urged our public market counterparties, primarily investment banks, to expand their ESG manpower and research capabilities, especially in Hong Kong.

We continued to participate in various industry forums and speaking engagements to share insights on RI and climate change strategies.
