Aviva Investors boosts responsible investment team

21st March 2024

Aviva Investors has made three new appointments to the responsible investment team within its real assets unit.

The most senior hire is Phillipa Grant, (pictured above) who joins as director of sustainable investments. She joins from global advisory business AESG, where she was partner and global director of sustainability. 

A chartered engineer, Grant will be responsible for providing advice to support strategy development and investment decisions across Aviva Investors’ real assets sustainable fund range, alongside delivery and reporting within portfolios.

The team also welcomes Elizabeth Ortiz, who joins from KPMG as an associate working across private market classes, and Jeremy Ho, who will be responsible for delivering sustainability research and due diligence for Aviva Investors’ private lending business.

All three report too Edward Dixon, head of responsible investment, real assets, who said: “We are really pleased to extend the responsible investment capabilities of our Real Assets function through the appointment of Phillipa, Elizabeth and Jeremy. 

“Our recent Real Assets Study showed that 57% of institutional investors have a commitment to reaching net zero, so it is vitally important we have the resources and expertise to guide our clients and show how real assets allocations can align portfolios with those objectives.”
