At Stone Point, we believe that responsible investment practices that incorporate consideration of environmental, social and governance factors translate into positive outcomes, particularly in a rapidly changing world. We seek to incorporate ESG matters into our investment analysis and decision-making process and engage on meaningful ESG topics with our portfolio company management teams, where appropriate, throughout the investment process.
Stone Point’s ESG Committee, which includes team members from across the firm and is chaired by the firm’s Chief Compliance Officer, is responsible for setting policy and standards for responsible investment through maintenance of the Trident Responsible Investment Policy, the Credit Responsible Investment Policy and associated implementation tools.
Stone Point is committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace in order to bring strength and effectiveness to our organization. We believe the best investment decisions result from the consideration of various points of view, and each of our investment professionals is encouraged to ask questions, share ideas and challenge one another. Open and honest communication fosters constructive debate and improves our investment decisions. We believe that we are stronger because of our differences and understand that we must support and learn from each other.
Stone Point established a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee in 2018, with a mission to promote diversity and inclusion within the Stone Point community. The committee has undertaken a variety of initiatives focused on recruiting and retaining diverse talent, educating our people and portfolio companies, and continually striving to find ways to make progress going forward.
Stone Point and its employees are committed to making a positive social impact — both locally and globally. We have sponsored numerous charitable events and helped empower organizations that are important to our team and our partners. Stone Point has a company-match program for employee donations, and encourages its employees to participate in community service activities, including through company-sponsored paid time off for volunteer activities.
Stone Point is generally focused on charitable giving to support education, health, well-being, social justice and other causes that are important to Stone Point and its team members.
Also, given the national reach of the Trident portfolio, Stone Point strives to support portfolio companies with initiatives that they are pursuing to promote charitable giving. We believe this is an important way for us to extend our support beyond our local community. Organizations we and our portfolio companies have supported include:
