In her role as Investment Director at Wellington Management, Louise has a particular focus on impact investing (environmental and social). She is responsible for a range of equity investment approaches, including our Global Impact equity offering, for clients in EMEA.


She is involved with the integrity of the investment approaches by overseeing portfolio positioning, performance and risk exposures. Louise also meets with clients, prospects and consultants to communicate the investment philosophy, strategy, positioning and performance. She has a strong vision for raising the awareness and understanding of impact investing and engages institutional investors and other asset owners to help them invest in ways that maximise their value alignment without compromising their fiduciary responsibility.
