Schroders appoints new head of sustainable credit
Saida Eggerstedt will also serve as sustainable credit fund manager and work with the firm's sustainability team
Schroders has appointed Saida Eggerstedt as head of sustainable credit, expanding its sustainable investment capabilities.
Eggerstedt will report to Patrick Vogel, head of credit in Europe. She will also assume the role of sustainable credit fund manager and work in partnership with Schroders’ sustainability team, led by Jessica Ground, Schroders’ global head of stewardship.
Eggerstedt joined Schroders in September and is based in Frankfurt. She brings over a decade of experience managing sustainable credit strategies for institutions and intermediaries. Most recently, she was head of corporates, financials, at Deka Investment. Prior to Deka, Eggerstedt managed credit portfolios, including sustainable strategies at Standard Life Investments. She has also been the head of high yield at Union Investment.
“Saida is an experienced and accomplished investor in sustainable credit. She will further enhance the strength of the team by providing a specialist sustainable investment lens, and also as an architect in our range of sustainable credit strategies,” says Vogel.
“We have been integrating ESG into our investment processes for twenty years, viewing it as an essential to securing long-term, sustainable returns in a continually changing investment environment for our clients,” says Ground.
Schroders was last month awarded the highest accolade by the Principles for Responsible Investment for its commitment to responsible investing for the fifth consecutive year.
