Joint Sustainable Investment Partnership

Lombard Odier Partnership on Sustainable Investment

Lombard Odier and the University of Oxford have launched a new multi-year partnership to foster research and teaching on sustainable finance and investment, with a particular focus on climate change, circular economy and nature.

Part of the partnership is the creation of the first endowed professorship of sustainable finance at any major global research university.

Dr Ben Caldecott, founder and Director of the Oxford Sustainable Finance Programme, has been appointed the first holder of the post and will become the Lombard Odier Associate Professor and Senior Research Fellow of Sustainable Finance at the University of Oxford.

The post is based at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment within the School of Geography and the Environment, and connected to Oriel College, Oxford.

Additional features of the partnership:

  1. Lombard Odier will work with Oxford University's scholars to integrate the University's pioneering work into their own proprietary research and investment solutions;
  2. Oxford will establish a programme for the ongoing training of Lombard Odier investment professionals, while Oxford scholars will benefit from accessing Lombard Odier's research and product innovation;
  3. The two institutions will host a joint annual research forum, open to the wider academic and practitioner community.
