Comment on the Covid-19 situation

Despite the regional containment measures and international travel restrictions, responsAbility is well prepared to continue performing all main operational functions. Now, more than ever, investors achieve a dramatically increased impact with their investments.

The impact of the global pandemic caused by Covid-19 is felt everywhere. Here is a brief evaluation of what this means for responsAbility and the investment solutions we manage. 

 

PRIVATE DEBT AND PRIVATE EQUITY: OVERALL LESS IMPACTED

Our fund investments are less impacted overall by the dramatic movements of global capital markets, as all of them are private debt or private equity in nature. Given the unprecedented nature of the Covid-19 crisis and the resulting economic troubles on the horizon, we are assessing the risk profile of our markets and portfolios as prudently as we can and will dynamically manage the situation according to the evolution of our investment markets. We always focus on protecting our investors’ capital whilst achieving the best possible return and impact.

 

IMPACT – NOW, MORE THAN EVER

Now, more than ever, investors in our funds achieve a dramatically increased impact with their investment. Their capital finances entrepreneurs and families in nearly 80 countries who are crucial to the economies of the most vulnerable parts of their society. This has a direct positive effect on the resilience of these communities around the globe in the current situation. 

 

RESPONSABILITY REMAINS FULLY OPERATIONAL

Despite the regional containment measures and international travel restrictions, responsAbility is well prepared to continue performing all main operational functions. Our workstreams with our investee companies are, of course, digitalized and we have been accustomed to offering flexible and remote working to our employees for quite some time. 

 

These are extraordinary times. Please take care of yourself, your families and also the most vulnerable members of our society.
