Responsible Investment Analyst - Active Strategies

Matthew Courtnell
As an responsible investment analyst, Matthew is focused on sustainability and is always looking for interesting thematic talking points alongside qualitative research to inform discussions with corporates and NGOs. Matthew joined LGIM in 2011 from boutique wealth management business Psigma Investments, where he worked as an equity analyst for four years. When not focused on equities, Matthew spends his time indulging in what he considers the finer things in life; as a man of contradiction, this sees him combine his love for Italian wine with a passion for listening to heavy metal music.
