Frontier is delighted to announce the appointment of Fiona Reynolds, as a new independent Director of our Board.
Fiona is concluding a nine year posting as Chief Executive of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) – a United Nations supported body that encourages investors around the globe to use responsible investment practices to enhance returns and better manage risks.
In her time at the PRI, Fiona has overseen growth of more than 4,000 signatories representing A$121 trillion in assets around the world. During her tenure the PRI has become one of the most significant and recognised investment institutions in the world.
Prior to leading the PRI from its London Head Office, Fiona was the CEO of the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees for seven years.
Frontier Chair, Gabriel Szondy, is delighted with the appointment.
“Fiona is well known to many in the Australian institutional investment community, both through her outstanding work at the PRI and from a connection to the superannuation industry that dates back more than two decades”, said Mr Szondy.
“We look forward to Fiona bringing her extensive strategic experience, particularly her knowledge of, and passion for, responsible investment, to the Frontier Board. Fiona has spent her professional life advocating for industry best practice, whether that be for superannuation policy changes or driving for a more sustainable and just future through shaping investment practices. Frontier, our clients and their beneficiaries, will all benefit from her contribution.”
Frontier has a long standing and strong focus on responsible investment practices, with our Responsible Investment Group advising asset owners in this space. We have also developed a range of proprietary tools and technology to assist responsible investment decision making and portfolio monitoring. Frontier is also one of twelve investment consulting firms from around the globe, including JANA and Willis Towers Watson in Australia and our GIRA partner LCP in the United Kingdom, to have signed up to the recently launched Net Zero Investment Consultants Initiative (NZICI) committing to supporting the goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner.
