Kaminker has been appointed as the head of sustainable investment research and strategy at Lombard Odier Investment Managers (LOIM).

In the newly created position, he will focus on improving the sustainability and research capabilities of LOIM.

He most recently served as the head of sustainable finance research and a senior adviser at Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken.

Formerly, he worked at OECD as the lead economist and policy adviser for sustainable finance.

He also had stints at Société Générale and Goldman Sachs.

Additionally, Lombard Odier named Ebba Lepage as its head of corporate sustainability.

She will assume the new role on 19 August 2019.

Previously, she worked as the group vice president M&A and corporate finance at Stora Enso.

Lombard Odier Group senior managing partner Patrick Odier said: “I am pleased to welcome such experienced talents to Lombard Odier as we continue to strengthen our sustainability expertise and offering.

“Seeking to identify and provide the best solutions for our clients is at the heart of what we do, while always ensuring we have a positive impact on society, creating a better future for the next generation.”

Earlier this year, Lombard Odier appointed Stephen Kamp as the COO for private clients.

The bank was recently also in the news for the sale of its Gibraltar private banking business to J. Safra Sarasin Group.
