El-Khoury appointed sustainability manager at Merlon
Merlon Capital Partners has appointed Rebecca El-Khoury as sustainability manager, boosting its environmental, social and governance (ESG) research capabilities.
El-Khoury joins Merlon from a similar position at TransGrid, and in her new role she will support Merlon's efforts to integrate ESG-related matters across its Australian equity funds.
“ESG related matters are becoming increasingly important in assessing potential and monitoring existing investments," Merlon lead portfolio manager, Neil Margolis, said.
"Further, the skills required to develop a deep understanding of ESG related issues and coordinate engagement activities is becoming increasingly specialised and resource intensive. We are excited to work with Rebecca to further develop and implement our ESG philosophy and processes."
