Schroders Singapore boosts ESG hub with four ESG dedicated specialists

This is part of the firm's commitment to further advance ESG in the region.

Four Asian ESG specialists, including a senior appointment for the Head of Asian Sustainability Strategy, is part of Schroders Singapore’s plans to further its commitments to advance its ESG push in the region through its regional Centre of Excellence for Sustainability (CoES), first established in Singapore in October last year.

They will be part of Schroders’ Global Sustainability team of over 20 specialists, led by Global Head of Sustainable Investment Andy Howard.

Schroders said that the Asian Sustainability team will drive Schroders’ dialogues with Asian asset owners and intermediaries, delivering Asia-focused ESG insights and thought leadership. The team will leverage on the firm’s extensive experience in engaging with policymakers and industry partners in key global ESG initiatives, to actively represent Schroders in regional industry forums and contribute to regulatory consultations, reinforcing Schroders’ leading position in sustainability.

The CoES also houses an ESG Education Hub, which utilises digital elements including gamification and modular bite-sized content, to deliver a curated, agile and engaging learning experience. Besides training for Schroders employees, the Hub will play a critical role in collaboration with clients and partners across the region, to drive larger-scale ESG fluency and upskilling.

“We believe that ESG issues and challenges are wide-ranging and global, and as such will require multiple lenses to address. The expertise that we are developing in Singapore and across Asia in ESG research, integration and engagement, is therefore an integral part of our global commitment to enhance our sustainability capability, to achieve optimal investment outcomes for our clients,” Howard said.
