Osmosis Investment Management appoints senior research analyst from Carbon Disclosure Project

Osmosis Investment Management, a sustainability specialist with USD1.4 billion in client assets, has hired Lennart Hermans from the Carbon Disclosure Project – the global environmental reporting organisation.

Hermans is the seventh new hire to the business since mid-2018, bringing the Osmosis team up to 19 staff, as it meets growing demand for alpha generating sustainable investment strategies.
Hermans joined Osmosis in January 2019 as a senior research analyst, reporting to chief executive Ben Dear, to further develop the Osmosis proprietary research process.
At the Carbon Disclosure Project, Hermans was a senior technical officer, developing assessment methodologies for corporate disclosure on climate change, water security and deforestation. He has also worked in a number of consultancy roles and holds an MSc. in Bioscience Engineering and a Master in Social Entrepreneurship.
Ben Dear, chief executive officer of Osmosis Investment Management, says: “Lennart is an important hire for us and is part of a much larger expansion plan over 2019 – as we engage with clients on a suite of strategies that have all outperformed their respective benchmarks over three years, or since inception, to the end of 2019.
“Lennart’s deep understanding of environmental reporting will help us enhance our key informational advantage – which is the ability to standardise and interrogate corporate environmental data to generate additional returns. He is the seventh addition to the team since mid-2018, and that’s testament to the demand for investment strategies seeking both a beneficial environmental and financial outcome.”
