In our view, private markets firms with an active ownership approach are very well positioned to lead positive change. We are highly motivated to achieve our ambitious sustainability vision and remain committed to creating sustainable returns with lasting, positive impact for our stakeholders. For example, our Stakeholder Benefits Program, a key focus, has continued to evolve as we build companies that employees desire to work for by re-investing substantially into their development and providing financial or wellbeing initiatives for staff."
