Head of Sustainability Research and Stewardship

Allianz Global Investors

Heading up the firm’s Sustainability Research and Stewardship activities under the firm’s revamped Sustainability structure. Sustainability Research comprises thematic research, sector frameworks and sustainability company profiles. 

The Thematic Research centres around the firm’s 3 core themes: Climate Change, Planetary Boundaries and Inclusive Capitalism – creating publications that help guide investors into how to invest in these themes and related sub-themes. The flow between thematic research, sector frameworks and sustainability company profiles allow for a top-down meets bottoms-up approach to the different investing styles and frameworks across ESG and Sustainability. The research activities are complemented by the engagement and proxy voting activities of the Stewardship team, who publish Stewardship Insights publications to demystify our approach to Stewardship activities. The team collaborates with the firm’s Sustainability Investment Office on topics like exclusions and participation in industry bodies and the Sustainability Methodologies and Analytics Team on topics like the new regulatory requirements like Sustainable Investment Share. Lastly, the team works closely with Investments, Products and Distribution on Sustainability product development and processes.
