NN Investment Partners has appointed Willem Schramade as senior portfolio manager covering impact investing as part of its Sustainable Equity team.
Working alongside lead portfolio manager Huub van der Riet and under the supervision of Hendrik-Jan Boer, head of NN IP’s Sustainable Equity group, Schramade will cover the group’s Impact Investing strategy, which is initially available in the Dutch market through the NN Global Sustainable Opportunities Fund.
The strategy focusses on investing in listed companies that directly address social challenges alongside making a financial return. A Luxemburg fund vehicle for the international market is expected to follow at the beginning of next year.
Schramade joins from Robeco, where he has worked as a Global Equtiies analyst in charge of driving the adoption of ESG standards. Prior to joining Robeco in 2007, he worked among others at PriceWaterhouseCoopers and General Electric.
