Fiera Capital and Fiera Private Credit are committed to ensuring that environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are fully integrated into our investment processes from sourcing, due diligence and risk assessment, decision making, and post-investment portfolio management.

We believe that businesses that effectively manage ESG factors have superior long-term prospects, and are more likely to create sustainable long-term value, than those that do not.

Incorporating assessment of ESG management in the due diligence on prospective borrowers assists in evaluating the credit worthiness of the business and can materially reduce our risk. Evaluating ESG compliance is an important consideration in determining whether an investment is viable and attractive.

We lend to various sustainable development goals, including good health and well-being (financing nursing homes), sustainable cities and communities (real estate construction, lending to affordable housing), decent work and economic growth (lending to businesses).

We represent investors who are concerned, as we are, about the implementation of good ESG practices.
