Sustainable Investing Council



Morgan Stanley Investment Management ("Investment Management"), in partnership with the Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing, today announced an important milestone in its ongoing commitment to sustainable investing with the launch of the Investment Management Sustainable Investing Council (the "Council").

Chaired by Rui De Figueiredo, Co-head and CIO of the Solutions & Multi-Asset Group within Investment Management, this global, cross-functional team of leaders is committed to delivering value across multiple dimensions by promoting a disciplined approach to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into the investment process.

The Council will drive Investment Management's global effort by promoting an overall framework for integrating ESG and ESG standards into Investment Management's investment processes, product development, measurement, education, client engagement and reporting. The Council will also rely on an Advisory Committee, comprised of senior investors and subject matter experts within the Firm, for relevant insights and perspectives.

"Morgan Stanley is dedicated to providing compelling sustainable and impact investing options to our diverse client baseā€“to deliver both competitive financial returns and positive environmental and social impact," said Audrey Choi, CEO of the Institute for Sustainable Investing and Chief Marketing Officer. "Building on our sustainable investing leadership, the Council will play an important role in further expanding our client-centric solutions."

With increasing interest from clients and LPs, with the assistance of the Council, the aim is to continue to help clients with solutions that meet their financial and social goals.

Dan Simkowitz, Head of Investment Management and a member of the Institute for Sustainable Investing Internal Advisory Board, added, "At Morgan Stanley Investment Management, we are committed to providing portfolio solutions that help clients meet specific environmental, social and governance goals. The Council and Advisory Committee are additional steps to build on this across our broad range of investment teams, products and geographies."
