Kingsmill Bond, New Energy Strategist at Carbon Tracker appointed to WHEB’s independent Advisory Committee

WHEB Asset Management is pleased to announce that Kingsmill Bond has been appointed to the firm’s independent Investment Advisory Committee.

Kingsmill is a New Energy Strategist at Carbon Tracker. His role is to analyse and communicate to investors the dramatic implications of the transition away from fossil fuels for companies and markets.

Before joining Carbon Tracker, Kingsmill worked as a sell-side equity analyst and strategist for twenty years at Deutsche Bank and Citibank in London, Hong Kong and Moscow. He has written on emerging markets and global themes including the changing fortunes of oil and gas companies.

Seb Beloe, Partner and Head of Research at WHEB said, “WHEB’s advisory committee provides independent oversight and governance on behalf of clients in WHEB’s investment strategy. Kingsmill’s knowledge of equity markets combined with his insights into the emerging low carbon economy will be enormously valuable in appraising WHEB’s investment strategy and portfolio holdings. We are genuinely delighted to have someone of Kingsmill’s calibre join our committee.”

Kingsmill Bond said “I am thrilled to be joining WHEB’s Advisory Committee and I look forward to sharing my thoughts on the emerging low carbon economy and what this means for sustainability investment strategies like WHEB’s.”

Kingsmill joins four other external members of the committee which include Kelly Clark, Director of the Finance Dialogue, Mike Clark of Ario Advisory and former director of Responsible Investment at Russell Investments and Carole Ferguson, Head of Research at the CDP. The Committee meets every four months to review the holdings in WHEB’s investment funds for their consistency with the funds’ aims and objectives.
