Based in London, Moret will lead a team of global ESG specialists skilled at applying the expertise and insights of NTAM, gained over three decades constructing sustainable investment solutions for many of the world’s most sophisticated and progressive investors, to deliver highly efficient sustainable solutions.

Moret joins NTAM from Franklin Templeton, where she was global head of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG). During her tenure, Moret was responsible for establishing and leading the firm’s efforts to evolve the integration of ESG considerations into the investment process and risk framework, as well as shaping product development globally. Key to her efforts was her ability to leverage more than 10 years of risk analytics experience as she built out a foundational data infrastructure platform and wove ESG considerations into the investment process. She has held a variety of senior roles during her career in investment management.
