The DDQ is a tool to assist asset owners in their process for selecting managers. For private equity, to follow the limited partner responsible investment DDQ, we have been developing a fund terms guide to support their appointment efforts.

It identifies current and emerging best practice – as well as the potential constraints – of incorporating responsible investment into private equity fund terms and offers practical steps to LPs and GPs considering it.
