RELATED TOPICS​

RPMI Railpen has appointed Leo George as head of sustainable ownership.

George (pictured) replaces Deborah Gilshan who leaves at the end of March. He will be responsible for integrating sustainable ownership considerations across the GBP25 billion pension scheme’s public and private market investments.  
 
George has been with Railpen for over eight years during which time he has had responsibility for asset allocation of the scheme’s pooled funds, thematic investment research and setting the investment strategy for the scheme’s 100 plus different sections. He has over 15 years’ experience in financial services and prior to joining Railpen provided investment advice to institutional pension funds.
 
George will be recruiting a senior governance professional to work alongside Jamie Rosser, investment analyst in the sustainable ownership team.
 
Ciarán Barr, investment director, says: “We are very pleased that we have someone of Leo’s considerable experience to run our sustainable ownership team. I look forward to working with Leo as we continue to place sustainable ownership considerations at the heart of our investment decision making.”
 
George adds: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue Railpen’s work in this area. Sustainable ownership remains an integral part of Railpen’s investment approach to achieve the trustee’s mission to pay pensions securely, affordably and sustainably.”
