The $7 billion Health Super has appointed a new investment analyst responsible for integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks into the fund’s investment process, in addition to broader investment research.
Liza Rosser has crossed over from the legal and compliance department of Health Super to take on the new role, which also makes her responsible for implementing the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) at the fund, in addition to carrying out traditional investment analysis.
Before making the move, Rosser performed ESG analysis for the investments team, splitting her time between the investment and legal and compliance departments, making her the fund’s first dedicated ESG researcher, Brendon Shepherd, chief investment officer at Health Super, said.
“Now she’s joined us full time, and looks after broader investment issues as well as ESG issues,” Shepherd said.
Before joining the fund in late 2006, Rosser was the legal coordinator for Jacques Martin Legal, Mellon Legal and Mercer Legal, focusing on trustee education and corporate secretarial duties for trustees.
