Resolution Capital appoints ESG Analyst
Resolution Capital, a specialist global listed real assets investment manager, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Morgan Ellis as ESG Analyst.
Morgan has extensive investment research experience specialising in Global Real Estate and Materials sector companies.
Most recently he was Vice President, ESG Research at MSCI, focused on sustainable impact investing, mapping climate risk within global property and power assets, testing carbon regulation scenarios on ASX200 companies’ performance, and assessing modern slavery regulations and their impact on investors.
Before joining MSCI in 2014, Mr Ellis worked as a Senior Consultant for Aurecon in Sydney and as a London-based Sustainability Consultant for AECOM.
“This new role expands Resolution Capital’s investment team and will further support our ongoing commitment to thorough ESG research and implementation across our listed real estate and infrastructure strategies,” said Sonia Luton, Managing Director of Resolution Capital.
“Within the listed real estate and infrastructure sectors, robust ESG credentials can be a major driver of superior investment outcomes. This has been demonstrated by many of Resolution Capital’s investee companies in recent years and there is no doubt this will continue in the years to come.”
Mr Ellis said he is pleased be joining the highly credentialed investment team.
“Resolution Capital has a long history of taking a responsible approach to investing clients’ capital and I’m thrilled to play a role in the continued enhancement of the firm’s ESG capabilities.
“I believe it is critical that investment managers engage with companies and all stakeholders to encourage best-practice ESG standards, not only to generate greater investment outcomes, but also greater outcomes for the broader community.”
Resolution Capital integrates ESG considerations into its investment process to align with the six Principles of the United Nations Organisation initiated Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI). The firm has been a signatory to UNPRI (www.unpri.org) since 2010.
Resolution Capital is also member of the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) and benchmarks its Global Property Securities portfolio GRESB rating versus the relevant benchmark’s rating.
