Blackrock has appointed Christopher Kaminker as deputy head of BlackRock Sustainable Investing, as it “continues to expand the investment options, capabilities and research” in the area.

Kaminker joins from Lombard Odier, where he was group head of sustainable investment research, strategy and stewardship. In an internal memo on 11 July, BlackRock said he was a “globally recongised expert” and “built one of the industry’s leading active sustainable portfolio ranges”.

In his role Kaminker will look at product innovation globally in areas such as energy transition, biodiversity and climate resilience. He partner will with the BlackRock Investment Institute and the firm’s investment platforms, as BlackRock looks “to root the firm’s sustainable investing strategies in robust research and cutting-edge analytics”.
