by Alice Murray 26 July 2019

Apex Group has appointed Amara Goeree as global head of ESG product to coincide with the launch of its new data and rating service.

Apex’s GreenLight product aims to deliver ESG ratings for private companies. It also offers consulting services to support client implementing ESG processes in their due diligence efforts, value creation and reporting processes.

Goeree is a sustainability specialist, most recently head of corporate sustainability and responsible investment at Julius Baer. Prior to that she was deputy head of team leading the ESG ratings process for the Dow jones Sustainability Index at RobecoSAM AG.

Apex founder and CEO Peter Hughes said in a statement: “For Apex this product is just the start of the ESG revolution we hope to pioneer across financial services, enabling us to make a positive impact on the world. We envision a future in which a company’s ESG score is as important as its credit score.”
