February 11, 2021 / Media and Announcements
We are delighted to announce a new investment team will be joining Regnan. Bertrand Lecourt and Saurabh Sharma will be joining us from Fidelity where they have successfully managed a global equities sustainable water and waste investment strategy. Bertrand and Saurabh will be London based and commence in April.
Please see this morning’s ASX announcement for additional context.
As part of our growing presence as a leading provider of sustainable and impact strategies globally, this represents Regnan’s first sustainable thematic investment strategy and follows the launch in Australia of the Regnan Credit Impact and Regnan Global Equity Impact Solutions strategies.
This team is the second investment team to join Regnan since we expanded into investment management and follows the appointment of the Regnan Equity Impact Solutions team in December 2019, led by Tim Crockford, who joined from Federated Hermes. The team (Tim Crockford, Mohsin Ahmad, Maxime Le Floch and Maxine Wille) ran the Hermes Impact Opportunities Equity Strategy from its launch in 2017 until their departure to join Regnan. Further to previous communication, information on the team and global equities capability can be found here.
Bertrand and Saurabh will be able to leverage the depth of knowledge and responsible investment experience within Regnan Australia and the Equity Impact Solutions team in London. We believe the interplay between the teams will add significant value to clients and help enable us to influence, and add value to, the broader system.
Since its inception, Regnan has developed into a globally recognised responsible investment leader and in recent years we have had the opportunity to support some of the largest investors, investor networks, and RI initiatives in the world. Building on the work we do with Tim, Mohsin, Maxime and Maxine, we are excited about the opportunity to apply our capabilities further and believe this will strengthen the Regnan offer. We will continue to offer engagement, advocacy and advisory services to clients, and we will evolve our offering in line with changing client needs.
If you have any questions, please contact Chris Fayers (Head of Client Services) on 0438 671203 or myself on 0429 378770.
