17Capital has appointed Claire Hedley as ESG Director. She joins from Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM).

At GSAM, Hedley most recently led the ESG client strategy group in London. She was responsible for driving GSAM’s client facing and commercial ESG efforts across the EMEA region.

Claire joined Goldman Sachs in 2007 as an analyst. She spent several years working in both London and New York in its alternative investments & manager selection group.

Augustin Duhamel, managing partner of 17Capital, said: “Claire’s appointment marks an important milestone for 17Capital as we continue to grow and offer NAV financing to the private equity industry. ESG is now central to our firm and Claire’s extensive experience and expertise will allow us to further incorporate ESG across our investments and client solutions.”

Hedley added, “I am delighted to be joining 17Capital, which has established itself as a market leader in providing strategic financing for the private equity industry and has continued to demonstrate impressive growth with the recent close of its credit fund. I look forward to working closely with my 17Capital colleagues to continue evolving our ESG approach to ensure that ESG remains a top priority for the firm, its investors, and clients.”
