Penny Byrne joined the Standard Bank research team in 2015 and moved across to SBG Securities as an ESG investment analysts in 2022. She has a Masters in pure mathematics and a PhD in climate science, giving her a solid foundation to understand how environmental risks are likely to play out as the global climate changes. Both global and local asset managers are increasingly adopting sustainability criteria in their investment mandates and investment selection process. Our ESG offering is designed to assist them in understanding the different ESG risks companies face in a warming world that is looking to transition to a low carbon economy. These risks do not occur in a vacuum so it is also important to understand companies’ ESG impact and how they are adjusting their strategies to have a positive impact on the world while also managing their risks in a changing climate.
