Real Deals Due Diligence Roundtable: Integrated Assessments

Article originally published in Real Deals magazine May 2021.

 

In a recent roundtable hosted by Real Deals, Matt Farnsworth, Technical Director - Sustainable Business, ESG & Transaction Advisory, joined a group of due diligence professionals and fund managers to discuss the evolution of due diligence in the last year and how due diligence assessments have a vital role to play in value creation.

 

Matt shared his thoughts on the changing sustainability agenda and the increasing investor focus on ESG issues. Since the outbreak of Covid, these consumer pressures have only amplified, with business concerns on climate change, internal governance, supply chain and staff welfare issues stepping up in priority in management processes.

 

"There’s increased focus on culture and internal ESG governance and it’s well known that strong governance within a target business can be an excellent indicator of how successful a target will ultimately be."
