Marie Luchet Joins ACA Group as Managing Director for ESG
ACA Group (ACA), the leading governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) advisor in financial services, announced that Marie Luchet has joined the firm as Managing Director of ESG, heading up the practice’s strategy and vision for Europe.
Marie brings 20+ years of experience in sustainable finance, ESG research, and corporate sustainability. She was previously the Director of Continental Europe with Principles for Responsible Investment (UN-PRI), the leading global association in sustainable finance. There, she oversaw the design and implementation of PRI’s European strategy, which included supporting investors in implementing ESG integration practices for all types of investment strategies and asset classes and tailoring go- to-market strategies for PRI’s environmental, climate, social, and governance outputs.
Prior to this, Marie served as Head of Responsible Investment with ECOFI Investissements and as an ESG sell-side analyst with CIC Market Solutions. At ECOFI, she designed and implemented the ESG integration strategy for listed equity and fixed income portfolios, supervised the collection of ESG factors, designed the internal ESG rating platform and created the investment products’ ESG reporting. She also developed the firm’s engagement policy, conducting dialogs with investee companies’ senior management to raise awareness and drive change on their ESG issues.
Dan Mistler, Partner, Head of ESG Advisory of ACA Group, noted: “We couldn’t be more delighted that Marie has chosen ACA for her next adventure. Marie is a truly experienced leader in ESG. She has spent her career at the forefront of sustainable investing, on the asset manager, corporate and nonprofit sides, including most recently playing a senior role for the PRI in continental Europe. We see the ESG market changing, and Marie’s expertise and leadership will help ACA’s clients stay ahead of the curve, particularly in drawing on her first-hand experience in global best practices for ESG integration.”
Marie Luchet, Head of ESG Advisory, UK & EMEA of ACA Group, commented: “As I believe that private investors’ influence on companies can help tackle the world’s pressing sustainability issues, I am delighted to work with the ACA ESG Advisory team to support investment managers in implementing their ESG strategy, meeting their disclosure requirements and creating value at company, fund, and asset levels. The mainstreaming of responsible investment is here to stay; it is supported by continued and exponential growth in ESG regulation all around the world and by a strengthening of supervisors’ controls on managers’ ESG claims and practices. ACA has the expertise for clients to feel equipped and confident in navigating this complex and moving landscape.”
