    Share post:

    Stockholm (NordSIP) – Stockholm-based Worthwhile Capital Partners, a boutique placement agent focusing on sustainability, continues to expand. After successfully recruiting AP1’s former CIO Mikael Angberg a year ago, last week, the firm announced that another industry veteran, James Cameron, would join the team of experienced professionals.

    Founded in 2019 by Christian Andersson, Worthwhile Capital Partners aims to harness the transformational power of connecting capital with sustainable investment opportunities. The placement agent’s focus is on thematic investment strategies and direct investment opportunities across sectors such as climate change mitigation, sustainable use of water and marine sources, the circular economy, a healthy and efficient ecosystem, and pollution prevention.

    “I’m delighted to have been appointed a senior adviser to Worthwhile Capital Partners,” comments Cameron. “We have a huge challenge to find, aggregate, manage, and direct capital so that it flows into reducing climate, energy, and security risk; and creates real wealth. It has to flow in the right amount to the right places at the right speed and in the hands of people we trust to deliver a worthwhile outcome. That takes knowledge, skill, and perseverance, which Christian and his team have in good measure.”

    Cameron is perhaps best known for co-founding Climate Change Capital (CCC). As the firm’s chairman until 2015, he was instrumental in developing CCC into a premier investment bank, boasting 150 employees and USD 1.6 billion of assets under management. Before CCC, Cameron was a counsel at Baker & McKenzie, pioneering their Climate Change and Clean Energy Practice. He also co-founded the Foundation for International Environmental Law and Development (FIELD) and the Centre for International Environmental Law (CIEL), underlining his commitment to environmental law and policy.

    During his long and illustrious career, Cameron has served as an advisor in negotiating the UNFCCC and Kyoto Protocol for the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) and contributed as a Friend of COP26 and as an advisor to the Presidencies of the COP20, COP22, COP23, and COP28 climate negotiations. His experience and expertise continue to inspire and shape the next generation of leaders and policymakers through his academic appointments at several leading institutions including Yale, Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, the Grantham Institute, and the Colorado School of Mines. Cameron also holds influential positions on various boards and advisory committees across financial, legal, academic, and governmental organisations.

    “We are immensely thrilled to welcome James Cameron to Worthwhile Capital Partners as our new Senior Adviser,” comments Andersson. “James’s unparalleled expertise in climate advocacy and his distinguished career spanning over three decades make him an invaluable addition to our team as we embark on promoting investment strategies that decarbonise our economies, protect nature, and restore biodiversity. His appointment marks a significant milestone in our journey, and I am confident that his guidance will further elevate our efforts to merge strategic investment with environmental stewardship,” he adds.

    According to the announcement, Cameron is set to work closely with another Worthwhile partner, Niclas Sundström, to identify, analyse, and promote investment opportunities for the firm’s growing pool of institutional investors who aspire to be leaders in sustainable investing.
