Eastspring Investments, the asset management arm of Prudential, has named Stuart Wilson as head of sustainability.
Wilson will be based in Singapore for the newly created role, reporting directly to chief executive Wai-Kwong Seck.
In addition to leading the sustainability team, he will also work closely with the investment teams and regional leads to integrate ESG considerations into the firm’s investment process and develop new products.
Wilson was most recently the head of responsible investing at Australian superannuation fund Sunsuper.
“The appointment of [Wilson] bolsters our sustainability team,” said Seck. “[His] appointment will also strengthen our ongoing efforts with our parent company Prudential in transitioning to a low-carbon future and meeting its 2050 net zero carbon emissions goal.”
