Edward’s experience, knowledge and approach will be an invaluable asset to our team.”

Collins added: “I am excited to have joined the EC team at what is an important time in its development. The group has ambitious plans, evidenced by its launch of the Nobel Sustainability Fund.  Sustainability as an investment theme is only going to increase  in significance and our global group of specialist investment managers allows us to identify and support sustainable and innovative technology around the world.”
