Brunel is delighted to have had our staff recognised with two prestigious awards at Institutional Investor’s Peer-to-Peer Awards, which draws nominations directly from industry peers.
Brunel Independent Chair Denise Le Gal received the Pension Personality of the Year, while Chief Responsible Investment Officer Faith Ward walked away with the award for Best ESG Programme on behalf of our Responsible Investment team and Brunel as a whole.
“I’m thrilled to accept this award on behalf of Brunel,” says Faith. “Responsible investment is at the core of Brunel’s approach, as we firmly believe it strengthens our client funds’ financial interests over the long term, including robust engagement and positive investment.”
We were particularly pleased that the commendations highlighted how our “unwavering determination, boundless energy and conviction has led to numerous vital partnerships for Brunel and making an industry-wide difference in awareness and affirmation of the importance of ESG considerations.”
It’s heartening to have our hard work acknowledged in such a positive way!
