Jupiter is pleased to announce a number of appointments within its sustainable investing strategies, doubling the size of the existing resource and adding fresh investment expertise to key portfolios.

 

Jupiter’s sustainability suite of funds offers clients a range of differentiated investment options with a shared goal of generating attractive returns through long-term sustainable investing. Following a strategy refresh earlier this year, Abbie Llewellyn-Waters was appointed as Head of Sustainable Investing, working with Rhys Petheram as Head of the Environmental Solutions team.

 

Maiken Anderberg joins the Global Sustainable Equity team as Equity Analyst. Having previously interned with Jupiter’s Sustainable Investing team in 2019, Maiken is returning to the company in a new permanent role, working closely with Abbie Llewellyn-Waters and analyst Freddie Woolfe with a dedicated focus on the Jupiter Global Sustainable Equities fund.

 

The Jupiter Global Sustainable Equities fund was launched in 2018 to offer clients an alternative to mainstream global equities by combining financial returns with positive environmental and social returns – enabling clients to participate in the transition to a more sustainable world. Having passed its three-year milestone in May this year, the fund continues to deliver strong returns for investors, delivering top quartile returns of 61.9% compared to 48.7% for its benchmark since launch*. More information on the first three years of this strategy can be found here.

 

Joining Jupiter in a newly created role, Noelle Guo is appointed Equity Analyst, Environmental Solutions. Supporting fund manager Jon Wallace and reporting into Rhys Petheram, Noelle will work across the equity strand of Jupiter’s environmental solutions suite. Noelle has eight years of equity research experience, joining from an Investment Analyst role at Pictet Asset Management before which she was at AB Bernstein as a Senior Research Associate.

 

Laura Conigliaro is appointed Analyst, Environmental Solutions. Having joined Jupiter in 2019 as a member of Jupiter’s Governance and Sustainability team, Laura will move across to the Environmental Solutions team, working directly with fixed income specialist Rhys Petheram with a particular focus on fixed income verification, also providing sustainability research into the desk’s environmental impact themes. Prior to joining Jupiter, Laura has held roles at the Inter-American Development Bank and sustainability management consultancy Critical Resource.

 

Jupiter’s Environmental Solutions suite of funds boasts a 33-year track record and over £1bn in AUM across the flagship Jupiter Ecology, Jupiter Global Ecology Growth and Jupiter Global Ecology Diversified funds, and the Jupiter Green Investment Trust. The strategy looks to invest in companies intentionally focused on providing solutions to sustainability challenges across key environmental themes.

 

In an internal move, Jenna Zegleman joins the teams as Investment Director. Having joined Jupiter in 2018 as a product specialist Jenna will provide client-facing support across the full range of portfolios in the Sustainable Investing suite.

 

In addition to these investment hires, Anisha Arora and James Kearns have joined Jupiter’s Governance and Sustainability team. An emerging markets economist and strategist with 10 years’ experience across sell side research and buy side asset management, Anisha joins from Allianz Global Investors and has experience in applying ESG considerations to macroeconomic analysis, as well as to the sovereign debt investment process. James joins Jupiter from BNP Paribas, where he worked initially in CSR within their Global Markets division before moving to become a Sustainable Finance Analyst.

 

Abbie Llewellyn-Waters, Head of Sustainable Investing, commented:
“As we navigate through this global pandemic, the importance of confronting the climate crisis, bridging social inequality and ensuring a sustainable future is more important than ever. By investing in companies leading a sustainable transition across our Global Sustainable Equities and Environmental Solutions strategies we are able to offer our clients a range of attractive and truly innovative solutions that deliver positive outcomes for planet, people and profit.”

 

Stephen Pearson, CIO, added:
“We are pleased to make these appointments to the team as we continue to grow Jupiter’s sustainability suite, helping us continue to innovate and build on our long heritage of sustainable investing. We are delighted to be making these appointments at this important point in time, cementing support for these key strategies with the addition of specialist insight and investment expertise.”
