Northern Trust Asset Management expands ESG team


Julia Kochetygova has joined Northern Trust Asset Management as senior environmental, social and governance (ESG) research analyst.

Based in London, Kochetygova will drive ESG research across Northern Trust’s array of asset class capabilities, working closely with other research teams and investment strategists.
“A recent survey by Northern Trust confirmed that over time there will be greater emphasis on ESG factors within the investment process,” says Mamadou-Abou Sarr, global head of ESG investing at Northern Trust Asset Management. “At Northern Trust, we understand the importance of ESG and are delighted to expand our capabilities. Julia’s knowledge and expertise will be valuable as we continue to meet the growing demand for responsible investing strategies in markets worldwide.”
Prior to joining Northern Trust, Kochetygova was head of sustainability indices at S&P Dow Jones Indices, where she led the global S&P ESG index development, including the launch of several new sustainability index families.
ESG investors look for companies whose practices promote environmental stewardship, social justice, human rights, diversity, consumer protection or corporate governance.
Northern Trust Asset Management has more than 25 years of experience managing socially responsible portfolios. It has approximately USD900 billion in total assets under management, including USD57.9 billion specifically related to its globally diverse set of ESG screened strategies.
