Preqin’s most recent 2022 H1 Investor Outlook – which surveyed 350 LPs investing across alternative assets – found a quarter (25%) reported having turned down an investment opportunity because of ESG standards, with a further two in five (39%) saying they would be prepared to do so.

The H1 2022 Investor Outlook also revealed that nearly three-quarters (72%) of investors believe fund managers are adopting ESG policies because of pressure from existing and prospective LPs.
