Deana Mitchell has joined Australian Ethical as an equities analyst, adding to a number of recent hires.
Deana Mitchell steps into the new role of equities analyst at Australian Ethical Investments, following 14 years at Macquarie Group, where she held senior roles such as deputy head of the Emerging Leaders Research team, associate director, and head of environmental, social and governance research.
Ms Mitchell is the latest addition to the Australian Ethical team, joining ethics analyst Amanda Richman and head of communications Dimity MacDonald who both came on in February.
Commenting on the appointments, Australian Ethical Investments managing director Phil Vernon said the firm was attracting “top talent” because it was a “purpose-driven business”.
“We believe a financial system based purely on the pursuit of profits or financial returns is not enough.
“A new model is needed where all decisions are made conscious of their broader impact on the world around us,” Mr Vernon said.
“Our employees tell us they feel very connected to a business that is so aligned to their values.”
Ms Mitchell will commence in her new position on 19 March.
