Sustainable investment specialist Osmosis Investment Management has further bolstered its European distribution team with the hire of Fredrik Werneman.
Werneman's appointment is part of a larger firm expansion which has seen personnel numbers double over a two-year period. Osmosis' unique investment approach identifies companies that display strong resource efficiency metrics via a unique, proprietary data set. Osmosis believes that over a market cycle these companies should display attractive investment characteristics, ultimately delivering stronger returns on equity. A non-targeted, natural outcome of the approach is a significant reduction in the environmental footprints of the funds and strategies relative to their respective benchmarks.
He has over 25 years experience in business development and client relationship management and has held senior distribution roles at leading asset management firms including Barclays Global Investors, Legal and General Investment Management and Insight Investment. In recent years he has had a particular focus on the Nordic region and German speaking Europe, both are key areas of growth for Osmosis.
Werneman has deep knowledge of and represented a broad range of equity and fixed income strategies. For the past twenty years he has been working with sophisticated investors across Europe to deliver optimal investment solutions, which incorporated a broad range of systematic quantitative equity products.
