AG Capital signs UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)

Austrian private equity firm AG Capital formally commits to implementing ESG considerations in its investment processes and is now a proud signatory of the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

AG Capital recently announced the first closing of Austrian Growth Capital Fund with capital commitments of currently EUR 140 million. The firm focuses on providing entrepreneurial equity to SMEs in Austria and neighbouring countries and aims to actively contribute to sustainably increase the enterprise values of its portfolio companies. In doing so, AG Capital believes that sustainable corporate development goes hand in hand with best practice behaviour in environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and it has therefore integrated ESG considerations as integral part into its investment processes.


“Becoming a signatory of the PRI, the leading advocate worldwide for responsible investing, further emphasizes our commitment to incorporating ESG considerations into our investment analysis and decision-making processes” say Karl Lankmayr and Daniel Jennewein, Managing Directors of AG Capital.


Launched in New York in 2006, the PRI works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of more than 4,300 signatories with over US $121 trillion of assets under management.


“We are delighted to welcome AG Capital on board as a PRI signatory” commented David Atkin, CEO of the PRI. “It is great to see its commitment to incorporating ESG considerations into its investment analysis and decision-making processes, and we look forward to working together in the future.”
