ESG Integration in Private Credit


Download the white paper

Benefit Street Partners, along with Malk Partners, coauthored this white paper detailing environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) integration and considerations in the private credit investment process. BSP partners with Malk in order to establish consistent and rigorous underwriting practices, enhance existing monitoring efforts, and position its commitment to ESG integration as a competitive advantage. Some of the issues examined in the white paper are:

  • Why management of ESG risks from an asset-level evaluation is often preferable to that of an industry-level analysis
  • How company-specific analysis with ESG criteria gives credit managers an expanded perspective on investment risk
  • A view on the future state of ESG in private credit, and the challenges the industry faces
