Nikko AM establishes Corp Sustainability Dept, as HSBC GAM survey finds UK IFAs call for ESG ratings (Investment Europe)

    Nikko Asset Management has announced the establishment of a Corporate Sustainability Department, intended to bolster its commitment to ESG both in terms of how it operates and how it approaches investing.

    The new department will be overseen by representative director and executive deputy president Junichi Sayato and led from Tokyo by global head of Product & Marketing and head of Corporate Sustainability Stefanie Drews. The department is among other things tasked with working with Nikko AM’s investment teams globally to communicate the firm’s approach to ESG in the investment process.

    Within the business, the department will be targeting specific ESG commitments, including “nurturing diversity and inclusion for LGBT, women, and those living with disability; monitoring adherence to local corporate governance codes; and minimising impact on the environment,” Nikko AM stated.
