Amelia helps companies respond to the evolving ESG landscape – including investor interest, regulatory pressures and impacts on financial performance. She works with Board members, the C-suite and senior executive teams to focus their ESG efforts and engagements on areas of the greatest business materiality. Amelia has consulted with agenda-setting NGOs and advised clients ranging from global banks to pre-IPO companies, FTSE 350 companies, and U.S. private equity firms. At Brunswick, Amelia leads the London Women’s Breakfasts and serves on the Group Environmental Committee and Inclusion & Diversity Committee.
Prior to Brunswick, Amelia spent 13 years as an Executive Director at J.P. Morgan, creating and leading the International Corporate Access team in New York and London. Over the course of her career she facilitated investment relationships between the world’s leading companies and US institutional investors, and brokered meetings with international finance ministers. In addition to her work on ESG, Amelia draws on her deep experience of capital markets to advise clients on other investor-engagement issues, such as shareholder activism.
Amelia began her career in New York as an equity research analyst at Merrill Lynch and subsequently led investor relations for a statistical arbitrage hedge fund. She holds degrees from the University of Michigan and University of London School of Oriental and African Studies, and was a Visiting Scholar at St Edmund Hall, Oxford.
In order to push companies and investors to link their sustainability goals with financial goals, the EU Parliament recently passed a law introducing a labelling system for what can be considered “green.” Nathan Fabian, Chief Investment Officer of UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) explains why we need precise definitions around what can be labelled “green” and how companies and investors can use the taxonomy regulation to report their environmentally sustainable activities.
