Osmosis appoints two new board members after Nikko AM takes stake

London-based Osmosis Investment Management has appointed two new board members, including the chief investment officer of Oxford University Endowment Management (OUEM).

The fund manager has appointed two women and says they will bring “diverse new perspectives into the boardroom”.

Stefanie Drews, president of Nikko Asset Management, and Sandra Robertson, CIO and CEO of OUEM, join the firm’s board.

Osmosis has assets under management of around $15 billion, an annual increase of almost 70%, said the firm.

The appointments follow Nikko AM taking a minority stake in Osmosis in a deal that included exclusive distribution rights of Osmosis’s products in the Asia region.

The Oxford Endowment Fund, managed by OUEM, was the first institutional external investor in Osmosis and has held an equity interest since 2012. It also recently seeded the latest fund launch in Osmosis’s Resource Efficient Core Equity Range.

Osmosis CEO Ben Dear said: “These appointments bring enormous talent, experience, and energy to our board of directors at a key inflection point for the business. Stefanie and Sandra are both vigorous advocates for sustainable investment, and I am sure that their vast knowledge and industry expertise will bring immense value to the firm.”
