ART’s responsible investment specialists switch to Redpoint

Redpoint Investment Management has appointed two portfolio managers, both from the Australian Retirement Trust (ART), where they were specialists in responsible investing.

Hunter Page and Chris Parks have joined the investment manager.

Both Page and Parks previously worked at QSuper, which merged with Sunsuper to form ART.

At ART, Page was responsible for managing the socially responsible investment option which grew from $320 million to $960 million under his leadership.

Previously, he was Head of New Business at Regnan, an impact investment manager now part of the Pendal Group.

Earlier in his career, Page worked at UBS, where he developed and implemented its global ESG strategy in Zurich, Switzerland.

Parks was most recently Sustainable Investment Strategist at ART, responsible for developing and implementing the fund’s approach to managing climate change risks and opportunities, including aligning the fund with net zero.

Previously, Parks was an ESG analyst at Credit Suisse and also at Regnan. He has also held ESG analyst positions at MSCI and ANZ Bank.

Redpoint chief executive Max Cappetta welcomed the two new portfolio managers to the company.

“With the addition of Hunter and Chris to the team, Redpoint is now well positioned to build on its existing responsible and impact investing capabilities, combining the deep global insights they bring with our active quantitative approach,” did he declare.

“This expertise will enable us to provide our clients with strategies that have a positive financial, environmental and societal impact while remaining aligned with our proven investment disciplines.”
