Ortec Finance, the leading provider of technology and solutions for risk and return management, has welcomed Andrew Flynn to the Climate & ESG Solutions team as it continues to extend its global presence across the EMEA, North America and APAC regions.
Based in London, Andrew will be primarily responsible for supporting UK and European institutional investors to effectively integrate the impact of climate change within their investment process. He joins from Clarity AI where he supported decision-makers with optimizing their organization’s social and environmental impact through the utilization of technology and scientific research.
Andrew joins Ortec Finance’s Climate & ESG Solutions team alongside other climate experts who joined the team in the last year. Maureen Maguire joined as Head of US Market, Climate & ESG Solutions, Sophie Heald as Senior Climate Specialist, based in Switzerland and Bronwyn Claire as Climate Science Lead in the APAC region.
Elske van de Burgt, Managing Director commented: “We are delighted to have attracted such a highly diverse group of knowledgeable and experienced climate experts to our fast-growing team. The combined skills and experience from Andrew, Maureen, Sophie and Bronwyn and the existing team will allow us to continue to service our global client base.
We will continue to focus on the different climate-related risk and return management needs of our clients, while ensuring that we remain at the industry forefront of the latest climate change developments. Our target is to translate these developments into our climate scenarios and other climate-related solutions to help investors understand and manage the risk and opportunities of climate change in their portfolios.
Andrew Flynn, Director Climate and ESG Solutions, EMEA added: “Financial institutions are increasingly looking to utilize a range of robust and plausible climate scenarios to manage their climate resilience. Our solutions offer a structured exploration, allowing our partners to build a thorough understanding of how climate-related financial risks could impact their investment portfolios in the long-term as well as how these risks differ from traditional financial models.
This is a very exciting time to be joining Ortec Finance and the Climate & ESG Solutions team who have used their extensive modelling and climate expertise to build independent and comprehensive solutions. I'm looking forward to helping our partners meet their reporting and disclosure obligations, as well as enabling them in their transition to net-zero.
