bfinance, the independent investment consultancy, today announces the appointment of Sarita Gosrani as ESG and Responsible Investment Director. Sarita will head up bfinance’s new ESG advisory unit based in its London office and brings more than a decade of experience in financial services, pensions and investments.

Gosrani was formerly Head of ESG Research at XPS Pensions Group. She helped lead the firm’s approach to responsible investing and supported clients with integrating environmental, social and governance considerations into their investment strategies. She was also responsible for developing proprietary asset manager research and monitoring frameworks to assess ESG across various asset classes.

Sarita holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and Human Geography from the University of Toronto, Canada. She will report to Duncan Higgs, Managing Director and Head of Portfolio Solutions at bfinance.

The firm has committed to supporting the goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner, in line with the purposes of the Paris Climate Agreement to limit the global temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

David Vafai, Founder and CEO of bfinance, said: “I am glad to welcome Sarita to the team – this new hire represents a notable expansion of the firm’s ESG capabilities. At the same time, we are excited to formalise the extensive work that we have been doing in supporting many clients on reducing the greenhouse gas emissions associated with their portfolios.”

Sarita Gosrani, ESG & Responsible Investment Specialist at bfinance, said: “I’m delighted to join bfinance and work with such a diverse global client base at a time when investors’ ESG and responsible investment requirements are developing rapidly. With more and more of the investment industry presenting claims around ESG-related capabilities and carbon emissions, there is a real need to help asset owners cut through the noise to establish and implement a clear strategy.”
