Triple Hire Boosts Nikko AM's ESG Push
As of the end of September this year, the company manages a total of $211 billion in assets. Following a trend observed among many similar entities, the firm has embraced ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance)/sustainable investing as a central focus.
Nikko Asset Management, headquartered in Singapore, has expanded its global ESG team by welcoming three new members. The recent additions, namely Sheela Veerappan, Bhaveer Shah, and Alexandre Tessier will be reporting to Natalia Rajewska, the global head of sustainable development, according to a statement released by the Japanese company.
Sheela Veerappan, serving as the global ESG integration lead, brings with her a rich 15-year background in sustainable investment. Before assuming this role, she held positions such as the head of Australia and New Zealand at UN Principles for Responsible Investment and later served as a senior sustainable investment specialist for a global asset manager.
Bhaveer Shah, taking on the role of Nikko AM’s global environmental lead, was formerly the vice president of applied climate and ESG investment research at MSCI.
Alexandre Tessier, specialising in ESG regulations, joins from a Europe-based asset management house.
All three professionals are stationed at the firm’s sustainable investment hub in Singapore, as disclosed by the company.
