Global investment manager Standard Life Investments has appointed two responsible investment analysts, Sophie Rahm and Marc Brammer, to join the company’s ESG investment team.
The new appointees will report to Standard Life Investments' head of responsible investment, Amanda Young, and will be responsible for the incorporation of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues into the business’ investment process.
“ESG considerations have grown in importance over the last decade, as more investors become aware of the significance of how human rights, labour, environmental and business ethics impact on corporate conduct," Ms Young said.
“We are delighted that Marc and Sophie have joined the team to further integrate ESG considerations into the wider investment process."
Ms Rahm joins the company from Schroders, where she held a similar position, and Mr Brammer makes the move from Inflection Point Capital Management, where he worked as senior adviser for research and data management.
“We believe that it is important to be clear and informative on the major environmental, social and governance issues surrounding our own business, our investee companies and the world in which we live,” Ms Young added.
