Fidelity International has announced the appointment of Sue Lyn Stubbs to the role of sustainable investing analyst.

“I am very excited to have Sue Lyn on board, she will help complement the Australian sustainability capability through her deep research and analytical skills, as well as strategic thinking,” commented Fidelity head of sustainable investing, Australia, Daniela Jaramillo.

“ESG continues to be a top priority at Fidelity. Building out the capability and coverage of our global sustainable investing team both here in APAC and in Europe, signals just how important this is to us as a firm and to our clients.”

Ms Stubbs studied at the University of Pennsylvania and earned a BSc in Economics at the Wharton School and a BA in International Studies as part of the Huntsman Program.
