Helios appoints Director of ESG

18 Aug 2020

Helios Investment Partners is pleased to announce the appointment of Phil Davis as Director of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG). Phil is a leader in his field with over 14 years of experience, most recently as Head of Sustainability, EMEA at The Carlyle Group. Phil joins the Portfolio Operations Group, contributing to value creation through the lifecycle of Helios investments, and supporting the firm in further advancing and expanding the scope of Helios’ ESG framework and policies.


Since the firm’s inception, Helios has integrated financial, governance, environmental and social considerations into our investment framework. We believe this is essential for creating value and mitigating risk and is particularly true in the developing markets in which we operate. Our pioneering approach on the continent and best-in-class operating practices enable us to transform African businesses, delivering both economic and societal benefits. Helios’ recent Certification B achievement further recognizes that the firm adheres to the highest standards of corporate governance, transparency, accountability, and social and environmental performance – including its investment strategy and activities.


We are delighted that Phil has joined our team as part of our ongoing commitment to build high growth sustainable businesses across Africa.
