Ninety One has announced the appointment of Daisy Streatfeild as Sustainability Director.
Streatfeild will be responsible for implementing Ninety One’s net zero commitments across the firm and within portfolios. She joins Ninety One from the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), where she served as Programme Director.
Nazmeera Moola, Chief Sustainability Officer, Ninety One: “As a signatory to the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, Ninety One is committed to ensuring that our portfolios achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Given our emerging markets heritage, we also understand the importance of setting net zero targets that do not depend on exclusion and divestment and can be assessed in the real economy – otherwise net zero will remain a pipe dream, as opposed to the reality we seek. Daisy’s deep level of experience in working within the sustainable finance sector, coupled with her passion for transforming the investment industry for the better, positions her as an ideal member of our team”.
