In this newly-created role, Beeching will focus on strengthening the ongoing integration of the firm's environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies into the investment process, liaising with investors and companies and broadening the firm's ESG-based initiatives across public and private debt markets.

Sustainability and responsible investing have become important considerations for investors on a global basis, and I am looking forward to working with Muzinich's investment teams and clients on further developing the firm's ESG strategies," said Archie Beeching.

Tatjana Greil-Castro, Muzinich's portfolio manager added:"Archie's expertise and tenure in the market significantly enhances our ESG capabilities. Muzinich was an early adopter in incorporating ESG criteria into client portfolios. Archie's appointment marks a further significant step in our commitment to providing ESG-based solutions for our clients, as well as engaging with corporate issuers and other stakeholders on ESG considerations."
