The role of institutional investors as a catalyst for change in the industry

Global institutional investors continue to emphasize the importance of improving diversity within their organizations as well expecting more from their external managers. Indeed, institutional investors are increasingly asking their GPs for diversity metrics - both qualitative and quantitative - as part of their capital allocation decision making process. However, a lack of standardized reporting metrics in the industry has meant that progress has been slow. As a major influence of GP behavior in the industry, there is much more that needs to be done to move the needle. Our panel of global and regional LPs will discuss and debate best practices to enhance DEI reporting in Asia and beyond.

  • How have LP conversations shifted in the past year in APAC, and how can they push for more diverse investment teams?
  • Why is there a need for a standardized approach/industry benchmark towards diversity, equity and inclusion in private equity?
  • What are some of the challenges LPs have faced when pushing DEI targets and initiatives in Asia?
  • What have LPs been doing internally within their organizations to promote DEI?
