A responsible and collaborative approach

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are integral to CVC Income & Growth Limited (CVCIG)’s investment process. We oversee the disclosures, policies and processes adopted by the Investment Vehicle Manager through our ESG Committee, which also monitors the evolving sustainability initiatives from European and UK regulators, legislative, industry associations, the harmonisation of frameworks, and the development of sustainability best practice.

We make the necessary disclosures in our Annual Report and on this website as an Article 6 fund under the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (SFDR).

ESG is a priority agenda topic at each quarterly Board meeting and includes regular discussions with the Investment Vehicle Manager. To ensure the Board is informed about relevant developments and collaborative industry activities relating to ESG, CVCIG participates in the ESG initiatives of various industry bodies. We are members of the European Leveraged Finance Association (ELFA) and two of our Directors, Vanessa Neill and Esther Gilbert, are members of ELFA’s ESG Committee. Ms Neill is also a member of the ESG Forum at the Association of Investment Companies. This participation provides useful insights on current ESG initiatives and issues in the investment trust sector and the debt, loan and CLO markets.  


The EU Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (SFDR) requires managers to assess and disclose how sustainability risks are considered in their investment processes, and how they consider investment decisions that might result in negative effects on sustainability factors, known as Principal Adverse Impacts. While the EU SFDR does not have a direct impact in the UK due to Brexit, it applies to third-country products marketed in the EU. CVC Income & Growth Limited is a self-managed alternative investment fund (AIF) and is marketed in the EU by CVC Credit Partners and, therefore, has been registered as an Article 6 fund under SFDR and makes the required disclosures in its financial reports.
