Carmignac has appointed Justin Kew, CFA, as Sustainability Manager. Based in London, Kew reports to Sandra Crowl, Stewardship Manager and Member of the Investment Committee.

The appointment follows Carmignac’s values and commitment to continue delivering long-term and sustainable investment for its clients. With ESG integrated within the investment process for more than 90 per cent of Carmignac’s total assets under management, including 3 SRI-labelled funds, Carmignac aims to address the clients’ needs on sustainable practices including managing energy transition through low carbon emissions and delivering overall stakeholder value in the companies it invests.
 
In this newly-created role, Kew will be the centre of excellence for the investment team where he is responsible for advancing the ESG investment process and framework, carrying out thematic research and designing investment solutions, including impact investment to help meet Carmignac’s clients’ long-term goals. In addition, Kew will support Carmignac’s current active engagement and industry initiatives.
 
Sandra Crowl, Stewardship Manager and Member of the Investment Committee at Carmignac, says: “We are pleased to welcome Justin to our team. His experience and skill in all aspects of socially responsible investing will be key to further developing our SRI fund range. With Justin and the rest of the team at Carmignac, we will be even better equipped to look after clients’ assets and their sustainability choices.”
 
Justin joins from Fidelity International, where he was a senior ESG analyst, responsible for integrating ESG data in the investment analysis and portfolio management process while designing investment process for clients. Prior to that, Justin held a role in Sustainable Investment and Product Management for JP Morgan Asset Management.
