Apex Group enhances ESG capabilities
July 25, 2019

Apex Group has reported this week that it has signified its commitment to become a leader in the ESG investment services space, launching a new ESG data and rating service, Apex GreenLight ESG Ratings (GreenLight), and appointing a Global Head of ESG Product to drive development.

It says GreenLight will deliver an in-house developed ESG rating evaluating privately held companies globally, unlocking unique market intelligence and delivering unprecedented access to a previously opaque asset class.

GreenLight will also deliver consulting services to support the integration of ESG across clients' due diligence, value creation and reporting processes, it adds.

The new product line will be offered alongside Apex's ESG reporting solutions for listed assets launched in October 2018, delivering an enhanced set of solutions to ease the reporting and due diligence process.

Amara Goeree has been appointed as Group's Global Head of ESG Product and will lead the firm's product development and go to market strategy. Goeree is a sustainability specialist with almost a decade's experience in ESG innovation within financial services. Most recently she was Head of Corporate Sustainability and Responsible Investment at Julius Baer. She also acted as Deputy Head of the team leading the ESG ratings process for the Dow Jones Sustainability Index at RobecoSAM AG.
