OMGI hires new responsible investment head

Old Mutual Global Investors (OMGI) has named Freddie Woolfe as the new head of responsible investment and stewardship.

Woolfe will be responsible for offering guidance to senior managers on corporate governance and stewardship related issues and will also manage a comprehensive global voting programme for the firm. He will report to head of UK equities, Richard Buxton.

Woolfe most recently served as the responsible investment analyst at Newton Investment Management. Prior to that, he served as associate director, head of UK engagement at Hermes Equity Ownership Services.

Early in his career, he also had a stint at HSBC’s fraud, risk and security office.

“Freddie has extensive experience in driving responsible investment strategies and his appointment will help us to further develop our stewardship activities, building on the foundations laid by Paul Emerton in recent years.  This will enhance our investment processes, allowing us to deliver better investor outcomes and I really look forward to working with him,” Buxton stated.
