AMP Capital has announced the appointment of Emily Woodland as its new co-head of sustainable investment, effective 12 November.
She would be based in Hong Kong and would lead the sustainable investment team alongside current team head, Sydney-based Ian Woods.
Woodland joined from ADM Capital where she was responsible for sustainable investment programs in Indonesia.
Also, from the start of 2019 Adrian Williams would become environmental, social and governance (ESG) director, real estate and listed equities, after a decade that he spent holding senior roles within the real estate business of AMP Capital including head of corporate responsibility and business platform, head of finance and acting chief operating officer.
The company also announced that Karin Halliday, senior manager corporate governance with 34 years of experience with AMP Capital, moved from Sydney to London earlier this year to support the globalisation of the ESG capability.
David Allen, global chief investment officer, equities, said: “I am delighted to welcome Emily to the team, whose passion for ESG and impact investment struck me from the first time we met. Under the joint leadership of Emily and Ian, we have great aspirations to deepen and broaden our offerings to clients, both within Australia and globally.”
The appointment of Woodland and Williams would increase the size of the Sustainable Investment team to six people.
