Oekom Research, a ratings agency for sustainable investments, is opening an office in London to support its business growth in the region.
The office will be supervised by Jaspreet Duhra, who previously worked at Vigeo Eiris – which is also active in the sustainability rating and responsible investment sector. Duhra has also worked at Sustainable Finance Ltd.
Previously, Oekom was present in London through co-operation with SI Partners. The new office follows the June opening of a subsidiary in New York to serve the North American market. A Paris office has been running since 2011, while representation in the Netherlands started in early 2016.
Robert Haßler, CEO, said: “Expanding and intensifying our operations in the UK is a very important step for us: in our capacity as a partner and service provider for sustainable investments, a local presence is the only way we can offer the market players adequate onsite support.”
“The political changes emerging from the Brexit vote, and new fundamentals that will follow the UK’s departure from the EU will in no way impair our commitment to the UK market.”
