FTSE Group boosts its global ESG team

Global index provider FTSE Group has announced it has further strengthened its environmental, social and governance (ESG) management team with the creation of three new global roles.

John Jarrett has been appointed as Deputy Head, FTSE ESG where he will be responsible for overseeing ESG research at a global level. John has previously been Global Research Director and COO at GovernanceMetrics International (GMI) and has a wealth of experience assisting international businesses and intergovernmental organisations on corporate governance and ESG factors.

John will join FTSE’s existing ESG team, contributing to the ongoing development of the next generation ESG methodology and associated services.

FTSE also announced that it has named Tony Campos as the new Head of ESG Americas with Arisa Kishigami being appointed as Head of ESG Asia Pacific. Tony and Arisa bring over a decade of ESG expertise to their new positions, having already played important roles within FTSE’s research team for a number of years.

All three will report to Head, FTSE ESG, David Harris who sits within FTSE’s Database Services Group led by Kevin Bourne.

David Harris, Head, FTSE ESG, said: “We are pleased to welcome John Jarrett to FTSE. John has significant market experience in the ESG space and his appointment reflects FTSE’s continued commitment to further develop the breadth and depth of our research capabilities.

“Our global reach is also strengthened with the appointment of Tony Campos and Arisa Kishigami as the new Heads of ESG for the Americas and Asia Pacific, respectively. FTSE has led the way in the development of ESG factors and they are a fundamental part of FTSE’s offering.

“We continue to work closely with our clients to provide a comprehensive range of products and data to help to support them in reaching their investment decisions”.

FTSE has been at the forefront of developments in the ESG market, having launched the FTSE4Good Index Series in 2001, the FTSE Environmental Market Series in 2008 and the ESG Ratings in 2017 with a new methodology since 2014. During this time FTSE has seen a significant increase in the number of institutional investors seeking to integrate ESG considerations into their investments.
