19 September 2023

Eurosif today announced the appointment of Matt Christensen as an Independent Director of the Association with effect from 1 September.

On Mr Christensen’s appointment, Eurosif Chair, Will Oulton commented:

“I am delighted that Matt has agreed to join the board of Eurosif. His experience of Eurosif as a former Executive Director and his position as a leader in the European asset management industry, brings the depth of experience and practitioner knowledge that will be invaluable to the association, its members and stakeholders going forward. As the European regulatory financial landscape continues to evolve, bringing implementation challenges for the whole industry, the appointment of Matt significantly strengthens Eurosif and adds to the depth of expertise on the board. I am very much looking forward to working with Matt in the exciting but challenging times ahead.”

Matt Christensen commenting on his appointment, said:

“I am honoured to join Eurosif as an Independent Director. My involvement with the organisation dates back to its foundation when sustainable investment was in its earliest phase. In the current landscape, where regulations play such a prominent role, Eurosif is ideally placed to promote the development of sustainable finance across Europe while at the same time provide pragmatic input to European policy makers on the reality faced by investors on their implementation. I hope to bring this perspective to the organisation, and I am looking forward to working with Will and the board in making a positive impact.”

Independent Directors are nominated by the Eurosif board and appointed by the Eurosif membership and serve for a term of three years.
