At Vista, we foster ESG understanding and accountability throughout the firm. Our investment professionals are responsible for managing and instilling the guiding principles of our ESG policy across our portfolio companies. In addition, Vista Consulting Group (VCG) is actively involved in addressing potential ESG risks during the private equity investment process and within the Vista firm. Our Compliance team provides oversight and ensures that employees at Vista adhere to our ESG policy.
Responsibility: From Sourcing to Exit
We incorporate ESG analysis into our private equity investment process to limit stakeholder risks and position our portfolio companies for sustainable growth and success. Before every deal and add-on acquisition, VCG subject matter experts conduct an in-depth review of the company’s technology, cybersecurity and data privacy practices. Additionally, we engage law firms and consulting firms to assess potential ESG risks and opportunities. All material findings are communicated to the investment committee.
After a deal has closed, Vista continues to monitor ESG performance and progress throughout the life of each private equity investment. We ensure ESG measures are maintained through regular conversations and documented check-ins with Vista portfolio company management and leadership, as well as board oversight during quarterly meetings.
