Cornerstone Capital has hired Craig Metrick as director, manager due diligence and thematic research.
Metrick will be responsible for overseeing the firm's manager and fund outreach and review process across the asset class spectrum.
He will support the Cornerstone Capital Investment Management (CCIM) business by helping to ensure the firm provides clients with a robust investment product solution suite, via the proprietary Cornerstone Portfolio Solutions (CPS) platform.
Metrick comes to Cornerstone from Mercer, where he was principal and US head of responsible investment. For more than 15 years, he has consulted with public, private and foundation clients on implementing responsible investment principles and mandates. Before joining Mercer in 2006, he was a director at the Investor Responsibility Research Center, which provided ESG research to institutional investors.
"We could not be more delighted to have Craig joining our organisation. Craig's deep understanding of the analytics behind asset manager selection, combined with his ability to identify critical global thematic trends will allow Cornerstone to bring the full breadth of our resources to bear on behalf of our clients," says Erika Karp, founder and CEO at Cornerstone Capital Group.
"Cornerstone's unique capabilities, quality team and commitment to sustainability makes it an ideal fit for the future of sustainable finance and my career. I look forward to contributing to Cornerstone and to continue to contribute to the industry that I have been committed to through my years at IRRC and Mercer," says Metrick.
