Impax strengthens Irish presence with new hires

RELATED TOPICS​

Impax Asset Management (Impax), a specialist asset manager investing in the transition to a more sustainable global economy, has appointed Adrian Missen as Country Head, Ireland and Emily Cassidy as Head of Compliance, Ireland.

The appointments follow a number of recent hires in Impax’s Dublin office, which Impax has established as a strategic centre for European Union activity post-Brexit.
 
Missen’s role is split between executive duties as Country Head and in Client Service, where he will lead client relations with Irish domiciled clients and consultants. He has more than 18 years’ experience in the industry across senior management, investments, and client service and business development, and previously served on the Investment Committee in his role as Head of Client Development at BCP Asset Management and was Senior Vice President at Kleinwort Benson Investors (now KBIGI). His appointment was effective as of 1 June 2021.
 
Cassidy joins from Eaton Vance, where she was Head of Compliance at its Irish entity. Emily has over 15 years’ experience in legal and compliance roles in financial services, having worked as a lawyer at the Central Bank of Ireland, and held senior compliance roles in LGIM and Blackrock. Her appointment was effective as of 14 June 2021.
 
Ian Simm, Chief Executive, Impax Asset Management, says: “The hire of Adrian and Emily and the build-out of the team represents a big leap forward for Impax in Ireland, our chosen base for European Union activity. Ireland has been the home of Impax’s UCITS funds range since 2004.  With a much larger team in Dublin, I expect that there’ll be many more opportunities for us to strengthen further relations with current clients and to extend our client base.”
 
Adrian Missen, Country Head, Ireland, Impax, adds: “I am delighted to join Impax, which is recognised globally as a pioneer in investing in the transition to a more sustainable economy. We have already built a fantastic team in Dublin and I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues to help support Impax’s growth journey and to capitalise on the significant opportunities in the Irish market.”
