“Responsible investing has been a key element of Aegon Asset Management’s investment philosophy for over 30 years and we are constantly reviewing our product offering to ensure we meet the needs of our clients. Most recently this has seen us shift our short-dated investment grade bond strategy to become the Global Short-Dated Climate Transition Fund, focusing on the transition to a net-zero global economy. “Anne brings deep experience of implementing regulatory change and adaptation across the business and is a strong advocate for climate solutions with real world impact. Her appointment as Global Climate Solutions Lead allows us to accelerate our expertise in climate transition investing as we continue to adapt for the future.”Adrian Hull, global head of core fixed income.
