Our Services

Our services cover the full investment cycle

Raison offers dedicated advisory services to investors and fund managers with active ownership mandates. Our main focus is on private equity, but we also support family offices, private foundations, venture capital, and others. We frequently leverage our long-standing experience from the corporate sector to assist individual companies in their sustainable transformation journeys, either as part of a portfolio company engagement or as stand-alone engagements with corporate clients.


At Raison, we work closely with investors and fund managers in private markets to unlock the potential of their sustainability and ESG efforts across the full deal cycle. In doing so, we always take an outset in the unique mission and investment thesis of our clients and the specific suite of sustainability impacts, risks and opportunities inherent in our clients’ investment universe.

We believe that the true value of our clients’ sustainability and ESG efforts lies in their ability to drive positive transformations at the portfolio company level, creating positive ripple effects throughout the economy. We also believe that a powerful and cohesive sustainable investment strategy make funds more attractive to Limited Partners as capital will gradually shift towards more sustainable investments.

Our investor services cover support and advisory across the full deal cycle, including:

  • Assess expectations from Limited Partners, regulators and stakeholders
  • Set ambitions and aspirations
  • Design of ESG policies, targets, and management systems
  • Build organisational capacity
  • Define and develop disclosures
Investment process
  • Design of investment procedures, governance and tools
  • Conduct third-party ESG screenings and due diligence
Ownership process
  • Define portfolio company governance and requirements
  • Strategy and target-setting at portfolio and PC level
  • Capacity-building for portfolio companies and/or Board of Directors
  • Develop ESG exit plan
  • Equity story development


Raison is built on substantial hands-on experience from supporting sustainable transformations in some of the world’s leading companies and brands as well as smaller and medium-sized companies across sectors.

We engage with corporate clients in two ways: either as part of our engagement with an investor or fund manager (portfolio company clients) or as independent engagements without the involvement of an investor or fund manager (company clients).

Our corporate advisory services are adapted to the specific needs of our clients and will typically cover one or more of the following services:

  • Stakeholder analysis and engagement
  • Trend spotting and materiality assessment
  • Strategy development and target setting
  • Sustainability research and program development
  • Impact measurement and management
  • Sustainability disclosure and communications
  • Capability building and training


What are our clients saying about us?

“In the process of designing our fund, Raison was instrumental in helping us figure out how to make Article 9 operational, balancing pragmatism and compliance with the spirit of SFDR. We now work with Raison on all our impact due diligence projects – they are quick to get on the ball and work independently, while understanding and respecting the need to control time spend. As I see as more and more funds operating in this space, it is clear to me that Raison Consulting is absolutely best-in-class.”

“Raison supported Stiesdal in carrying out our first double materiality assessment and in articulating our sustainability ambitions and roadmap. Raison has been instrumental in structuring and documenting our sustainability efforts in line with the latest legislation, while keeping a keen eye on proportionality and translating complex legislation into actionable plans. We recommend Raison for their vast knowledge of the sustainability legislative landscape, complemented by a pragmatic approach to enabling compliance and impact.”

“Working with Raison on our ESG initiative has been a transformative experience for us. Their expertise and dedication significantly helped us to align our business with best practices and industry standards.”
