Over the last decade, environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks have swiftly risen to the top of the investment community’s agenda. One survey from EY previously found that 92% of investors agree that over the long-term, ESG issues such as climate change and executive diversity have quantifiable impacts on businesses.

As investors work to factoring this into their business plans, many are turning to the consulting industry for support. One such firm is Alpha FMC, which has offices in London, Edinburgh, New York, Boston, Paris, Geneva, Zürich, Amsterdam, Luxembourg and Singapore, and over 440 permanent employees globally, providing perspective, strategy, and technical expertise to the world’s top asset and wealth managers.

The wing is growing quickly, and is currently engaged on multiple projects, working with many of the industry’s most high-profile organisations.

Stuart McNulty, Alpha FMC Global Chief Client Officer, commented, “ESG and responsible investing is a major theme for our clients. We are delighted that Troy has agreed to join a the Alpha FMC team in this space, and bring further insight, experience and senior capacity to expand our reach. He has a fantastic reputation in the industry and brings a wealth of experience.”
