Impax Asset Management has announced the appointment of Leah Fuhlbrugge to support Impax’s rapidly growing North American client base out of its New York office.
Leah has worked for Russell Investments since December 2014, as a Portfolio Analyst in the Multi-Asset Solutions Team. She was also a key member of Russell’s Global Sustainability Committee, working on strategies to develop and build new sustainable and responsible investment offerings. From 2008 – 2011 she worked for Renaissance Capital as an Equity Research Analyst.
Leah holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics & Finance from Sacred Heart University, Connecticut and is currently completing her Masters of Science, Sustainability Management at Columbia University, New York. She is also a Chartered Financial Analyst.
David Richardson, Global Head of Marketing & Client Service commented:
“We welcome Leah to the growing Impax team. She brings over a decade of analytical experience in global listed equity markets, and a passion for sustainability and the expanding investment opportunities within the environmental markets in which Impax invests.”
“Impax continues to experience strong growth in North American markets, which now account for over 50 per cent of new assets and almost 20 per cent of Impax’s total assets under management and advice. This growth has been driven primarily by institutional demand for investment portfolios that are positioned to benefit from the global shift to a more sustainable economy. Over the last year we have witnessed unprecedented levels of commitments from new clients and have a healthy pipeline of prospective investors.”
