As an analyst on the Investment Fund Research team my role is to find best of breed collective investments for inclusion in our clients’ portfolios and to carry out ongoing due diligence of funds where we are invested. One of my main areas of focus is sustainable investment funds alongside working with the team to evaluate how environmental, social and governance issues are integrated into the investment processes and stewardship of our broad list of funds under coverage. I also chair the Alternatives Committee and am a member of the Investment Funds Committee.
