With a strong team ethos you are expected to contribute to RI team performance and take on other responsibilities related to your area of expertise.

Responsible Investing is part of APG AM’s mission statement and we have a dedicated RI Investment Belief. Members of the Global Responsible Investment & Governance team are based in Amsterdam, New York and Hong Kong. The MD Global Responsible Investment & Governance is part of the management team of the investment function and reports into the Chief Investment Officer (CIO) on the APG Assessment Management Board.

This is an important role in helping to implement our clients’ ambitions and making a difference for the 4.7 million pensioners that we serve.
