Marcus Brookes, Chief Investment Officer Quilter Investors:

“We are delighted to be welcoming someone of Marisol’s abilities and experience to Quilter Investors. We have come a long way in a short space of time in implementing responsible investment and are proud of the products and services we have in place for advisers. However, we recognise that there is more to be done and that we cannot rest on our laurels. I look forward to working closely with Marisol to develop our offering further and ensure responsible investment is one of our core pillars of Quilter Investors.

Marisol Hernandez, Head of Responsible Investment Quilter Investors:

“Responsible investment has surged in popularity in recent years, but with that has brought challenges that need to be addressed. There can still be a lot of confusion on terminology and approaches and as such it has become crucial to be clear and precise in what it is we want to achieve in this space, where people, profits and planet can coexist. Quilter Investors has the ambition and drive to make responsible investment a success and make it part of the fabric of financial advice and I am excited to be part of this journey.”
