DNCA Finance has launched a responsible investment department to be led by Léa Dunand-Chatellet.
The Paris-based firm – an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers – said that the move was in response to the signing last year of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and reflects the firm’s aim to take its responsible investment approach “a step further”.
In her new role Dunand-Chatellet will establish a responsible and sustainable investment team with the aim of providing in-house research for the firm’s fund managers.
Dunand-Chatellet started her career at Oddo Securities’ extra-financial research department before becoming a portfolio manager and head of ESG research at Sycomore Asset Management in 2010.
In 2015, she joined Mirova as equity chief investment officer where she led a team of ten equity portfolio managers.
