Commenting, Artemis’ Senior Partner, Mark Murray, said: “Very rightly, stewardship in general, and ESG issues in particular, are increasingly important aspects of investment management. I am delighted that we have been able to attract someone of Antonia’s calibre to strengthen and develop Artemis’ overarching strategy on stewardship; work with our investment teams to help embed ESG considerations in their investment processes; and improve the communication of our stewardship activities to our clients.”
Antonia added: “I am very pleased to have joined Artemis. Its reputation as an active investment manager speaks for itself. In developing its ESG and stewardship activities, I will be working with Inez Oliver*, my Co-Head, and other teams to build on what Artemis has already begun. Artemis is committed to fulfilling its responsibilities as an investor, as an employer and towards wider society.”
