Robeco has named David Thomas PM for its upcoming biodiversity fund, which is expected to launch in the last quarter of 2022. He comes to Robeco from Ellerston Capital, where was a portfolio manager for a handful of funds, including a strategy for one of the largest sovereign wealth funds in the world.
Thomas: “The acceleration in the loss of biodiversity poses significant risks to the global economy: $44 trillion – or half the world’s GDP – is dependent on nature. The financial sector has a crucial role in helping to reduce further biodiversity loss by investing in companies that sustainably use or preserve natural capital. I am very proud to have been appointed senior portfolio manager of the new strategy.”
