Launch of the first industry-standard responsible investment DDQ in hedge funds - New York

Launch of the first industry-standard responsible investment DDQ in hedge funds

The PRI is pleased to invite you to the launch of the first industry-standard responsible investment due diligence questionnaire in hedge funds. 

We have developed this DDQ, in collaboration with the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) and the Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB), to improve transparency around ESG factors in the decision-making process, reduce the reporting burden, and enhance consistency and comparability of data across the industry. 

Join us on June 13, and be among the first to hear how this unique tool was developed and how it can benefit investors.

If you have any questions, please contact events@unpri.org.
