Swiss investment boutique Quaero Capital has hired Georgina Parker as ESG analyst.
Joining Quaero from the Swiss sustainable finance consulting firm Conser Invest, Parker will work with funds across the Quaero Capital investment department, identifying opportunities to expand and enhance their approaches to responsible investment. She began her career in 2007 as an equity analyst with Bessemer Trust, working in London and New York.
In 2014 she co-founded BroadMinded, a London-based network supporting gender equality for ambitious women, and in 2015 she worked as head of Sales at Virgin Pure, a Richard Branson-backed start-up focused on reducing plastic waste.
Thierry Callault, partner at Quaero Capital, said: “We want to make a strong commitment to Responsible Investment as we recognise its importance in the investment success of our clients and hence of our firm. We welcome Georgina and look forward to seeing how she will build more value into our investment processes, to the benefit of not just our investors but the environment and society at large.”
Quaero Capital onboarded an Accessible Clean Energy strategy in 2017, conceived in 2014, and managed by Martina Turner. The firm also manages European small cap funds, as well as listed and unlisted infrastructure equity strategies which have been integrating ESG criteria into their investment processes for many years.
