Sustainable Debt

Sustainable Debt

Here and now: The opportunity in high quality sustainable private debt

We invest in the debt that positively contributes to environmental and social objectives. These loans provide a stream of capital to companies funding sustainable activities, the climate transition and various social objectives.

From renewable energy generation, hydrogen, battery and smart meter innovation, to the development of waste management strategies for a circular economy, through to social objectives such as safe and affordable aged care services – the opportunities in sustainable private debt are significant and varied.

While both public and private sustainable debt markets are growing quickly, private debt can offer opportunities that are not always available in public markets. These can include:

  • Loans are floating rate in nature and move with interest rates, providing better protection against inflation.

  • First ranking security over cash flows and assets.

  • Contractual benefits including restrictions on asset sales, asset purchases, equity distributions etc

  • Access to sectors where access might be limited like renewable and government projects.

Responsible investment

Our corporate responsble investment strategy is based upon three strategic pillars of quality, stewardship and engagement.

Our Sustainable private debt capability targets debt investment opportunities that contribute to an environmental or social objective.

The Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) assessment is an important part of the credit research process and influences the internal credit rating (ICR) generated by our credit research analysts. We also apply portfolio restrictions that ensure all investment meet minimum ESG standards.

We believe in a transition to a net zero world; the full cost of carbon is not appropriately reflected in capital market pricing.

Funding the assets to shape our future

We invest in assets that positively contribute to the achievement of a variety of environmental and social objectives, all while following good governance practices.

Why do these assets appeal to investors?

Sustainable private debt assets can help future-proof portfolio objectives in order to manage unsustainable risks, while also taking advantage of the transition to a sustainable global economy and meaningful returns.


Provide investors with the opportunity to access assets that are typically not unavailable in public markets, increasing diversification potential.


Higher risk-adjusted returns due to the liquidity premium paid to the investor, often with lower volatility.

Inflation protection

The floating rate nature of the loans means the interest paid changes in line with interest rates, providing better protection against inflation.


Predictable cash flows that can be supported by long-term contractual revenue.
