Editor, SRI-CONNECT

Mike Tyrrell

I have been an SRI Analyst for the past 12 years initially at Jupiter Asset Management and then at HSBC Global Equities where I established the first SRI research on the ‘sell-side’ and, most recently, at Citi Investment Research.

Over this time, I have become a firm believer that rigorous sustainability analysis conducted by intelligent individuals embedded within ‘mainstream’ investment institutions via active and constructive dialogue with companies and independent experts can and does lead to better investment outcomes and a more sustainable society.

For me, SRI-CONNECT is an opportunity to use the emerging capabilities of social media to empower these individuals and to improve the efficiency of the process with the ultimate objective of embedding sustainability analysis as a core component of investment research and capital allocation.
