Capital Responsibility

Sixth Street seeks to deliver compelling risk-adjusted returns while conducting our business with high standards of integrity. We believe that environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) factors can affect the performance of our investments. Considering ESG factors allows us to spot risks, anticipate forward trends, and inform our overall investment decision-making.

At a minimum, the firm aims to follow the guidelines below to distinguish the responsible investment approach by asset class/strategy and its respective level of control:

  • For those investments in which we have control, we integrate ESG considerations into investment decisions where appropriate. We assess ESG risks and merits as part of our due diligence process and factor potentially significant impacts into our underwriting;
  • For those investments where we have influence such as through governance rights, to the extent that ESG-related information is available to us, we factor potentially significant impacts into our underwriting and evaluate investment decisions, where appropriate, as part of our overall diligence process; and,
  • For certain investments where we have no control or limited ability to assess or monitor ESG-related factors, we endeavor to identify and, where appropriate, elevate the consideration of ESG issues.

CEO Reviews

“They are in the trenches with us and are engaged on key initiatives. They didn’t come in and say you need to do this. They asked what we needed first. They saw some of our challenges and they jumped in with ideas, solutions, vendor recommendations and the right individuals to help us.”

Rick Schlenker, Co-Founder and SVP of Strategic Sales, Logile

“The introductions and support the More than Capital team has given us has been invaluable. From the wisdom and advice of our new board member to the new marketing messaging and prospect introductions, More than Capital has catapulted our progress.”
