Railpen expands sustainable team

British_trainRPMI Railpen, which manages £25 billion (€29 billion) for railway workers in the UK, is to recruit a senior governance professional for its sustainable ownership team.

Railpen, the investment manager of the Railways Pension Scheme, announced the recruitment today and said that Leo George, who has been with the firm for eight years, was its new head of sustainable ownership.

He replaces Deborah Gilshan who leaves at the end of March and will be responsible for integrating sustainable ownership policy across the scheme’s public and private market investments.

Railpen said George will recruit a senior governance professional to work alongside Jamie Rosser, investment analyst.

George said: “Sustainable ownership remains an integral part of Railpen’s investment approach to achieve the trustee’s mission to pay pensions securely, affordably and sustainably.”
