Golding appoints ESG director

by Krystal Scanlon 29 November 2021

Golding Capital Partners has appointed Christian Schütz as director of ESG.

Schütz was most recently at investment firm PIMCO, where he spent the last 14 years, most recently as senior vice president, credit research, based in Germany. In this role he led the integration of ESG in the firm’s corporate credit research, and was also a member of PIMCO’s sustainability initiative, in which he led the development of climate and carbon stress testing of investments. He initially joined the firm at the start of his career as a credit research analyst in 2007 in London, before rising through the ranks to his recent role.

In his new role, Schütz will lead the implementation of the firm’s sustainability goals both internally as well as its investments.

“We have been deeply engaged with the topics of sustainability and ESG for many years,” commented Matthias Reicherter, managing partner and CIO of Golding. “As part of our consistent and ongoing work to develop the corresponding structures we have now recruited an experienced expert in the person of Christian Schütz. Sustainability deserves and needs a dedicated full-time staff member to act as a beacon internally and externally. We believe it is vital for our investors, business partners and employees to ensure that we are taking a coherent, systematic approach to the key subject of ESG.”

Fund-of-funds manager Golding Capital Partners is headquartered in Munich, with additional offices in London, Luxembourg, Tokyo, New York and Zurich. The firm focuses on private equity, private debt and infrastructure in Europe.
