James MacLeay appears at two industry events

James MacLeay, who leads our responsible investment and ESG strategy, is involved in two highly anticipated industry events next week.

On Tuesday 18 June, he’ll be joining a fireside discussion at the British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA) ESG Conference in London entitled 'Championing Net Zero: how to motivate your portfolio companies'.

Moderated by Misa Andriamihaja (Senior Investment Specialist at The Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change), James will be joined on stage by Louise Plant from Alpine Fire Engineers Ltd, a WestBridge portfolio company.
The session is guaranteed to provide some valuable and practical insights for investors who are keen to drive stronger engagement around ESG within their portfolio.

The following day, James will be hosting a panel at the Real Deals Value Creation Summit.
Titled, 'Strategic exit: how to achieve strong returns in a challenging market', James will be joined by Bevan Duncan, partner, Livingbridge; Laurent Samama, managing partner, Jolt Capital and Rajib Arjun, CEO, Altius Strategic Consulting.

Among other things, they will be discussing:

- How to craft powerful equity stories against a challenging and dynamic macroeconomic backdrop

- How vital is reliable data for swift, confident transactions and what steps should firms take to enhance their data's reliability

- Strategies for finding buyers, enhancing exit readiness, and expanding the buyer universe

Both events have highly topical agendas. If you’re not able to attend and would like to hear about WestBridge’s approach to ESG and value creation, contact us at
