“A recent survey by Northern Trust confirmed that over time there will be greater emphasis on ESG factors within the investment process,” said Mamadou-Abou Sarr, global head of ESG investing at Northern Trust Asset Management. “At Northern Trust, we understand the importance of ESG and are delighted to expand our capabilities. Julia’s knowledge and expertise will be valuable as we continue to meet the growing demand for responsible investing strategies in markets worldwide.”
