Executive Director & Director of Responsible Investment
I combine working as an investment manager on the central charity team with a firm-wide role leading our responsible investment approach. As a charity investment manager I work with charities to define and implement an investment strategy and asset allocation that meets the charity’s requirements. In my role as director of responsible investment, I work to ensure that we act as stewards of our clients’ assets in order to protect and enhance our clients’ long-term returns.
