Australian Retirement Trust (ART) has appointed Nicole Bradford as head of sustainable investment.
Bradford joined from Cbus where she was global head of responsible investment for six years and previously worked at GE Capital as environmental and social risk leader for Asia Pacific.
This was the first leadership appointment made by the super fund since it completed the merger between Sunsuper and QSuper in February.
Ian Patrick, chief investment officer at ART, said: “As a profit-for-members superannuation fund, we believe integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into our investment philosophy is consistent with better investment outcomes and contributes to a more sustainable future for our members and all Australians.
“With more than 25 years’ experience embedding sustainable thinking and practices within organisations, Nicole will play a pivotal role in helping build on Australian Retirement Trust's work in the rapidly maturing space of responsible investment.”
Bradford would commence her role on 16 May, 2022.
