Triple Point Investment Manager has appointed experienced ESG financial services professional Lindsay Smart as Head of Sustainability.  

Smart brings over 15 years’ experience of ESG analysis in the financial sector having started her career at Flemings/ JP Morgan. She worked at Allianz Global Investors as Marketing Manager within the Institutional Business Development Team prior to moving to Citi Group to lead on Communications and sustainability initiatives for the Transaction Services division. Since 2011, Smart has held senior positions at leading institutions including ESG assessment data provider Video Eiris, and most recently ClearlySo, Europe´s leading impact investment bank where she was Head of Impact Research and Innovation. In her role, Smart led the development of the award-winning sustainability and impact assessment tool “ClearlySo ATLAS”, designed for private equity investors. 

Over the past 15 years, Smart has worked with investors and companies to maximise their sustainable impact. Smart has extensive experience developing internal sustainability strategies and communication plans, as well as providing training and workshops for business professionals to develop their understanding and approach to sustainability integration. Smart has advised UK and US companies and led the ‘green credential second opinion’ for the winning Green Bond bid for District of Columbia Water (the first 100-year certified green bond, brokered by Goldman Sachs).  

In 2017, Smart was named by Brummel Magazine as one of the top 50 influential women in Sustainability. Since 2016, she has acted as an assessor for the Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Award and was previously a member of the UKSIF analyst committee and judge for the City of London Sustainable Finance Awards.

At Triple Point, we have always been focused on providing innovative and compelling investment strategies. Lindsay’s experience will complement our existing ESG expertise, deepen our capabilities and strengthen our ability to create value for both our clients and society.”

Triple Point has an outstanding reputation for creating strategies that not only provide solid returns for its investors, but also focus on having a positive impact on society.  I am very much looking forward to working with the teams across the business and helping to further enhance Triple Point’s initiatives in the ESG and impact arena.”
