An Investment in Our Shared Future

ESG

An Investment in Our Shared Future

At Arcline, we seek to invest in companies that are meaningful to the world and enable a better future. We employ an investment thesis founded in identifying companies whose products and services impact the greater good.

We believe that environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors can fuel returns when proactively fostered and can be detrimental to returns when ignored. Our team understands that evaluating and monitoring ESG performance of the companies in which we invest can contribute to the success of our investment thesis.

“Our vision is to build meaningful to the world businesses that enable a better future.”

– Rajeev Amara, Chief Executive Officer

Principles + Implementation

ESG at Arcline
Our ESG philosophy is embedded within our team culture. Arcline has an established ESG policy that governs the ESG practices of our firm and provides our entire team with a framework for evaluating ESG risks and opportunities.
ESG in Investments
We are committed to investing in companies offering solutions that are relevant to the future needs of our society, including in sustainability, climate change, health and safety, and life saving technologies.</div
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Arcline believes that people are the most important part of what makes every business successful. We are committed to workforce diversity, equity in compensation, and an inclusive culture.

“Arcline is committed to DE&I across the portfolio and is inspired by the UN SDG goal of Gender Equality. We actively seek to ensure equal opportunities for women and other underrepresented groups at all levels of leadership.”

– Jackie Chapin, VP of Talent
Team

Insight Through Collaboration

We organize our team around capabilities, not siloed industry verticals. This fosters a collaborative culture that is designed to result in quicker insights and rapid decision-making.

Leadership

Our leadership team, which has worked together for an average of 16 years prior to founding Arcline, has built a low hierarchy organizational structure that is designed to empower team members to communicate openly, be creative, and make quick decisions. We believe the result is an uncommon degree of emergent behavior which fosters predictable yet unimaginable outcomes.
