Fiona Reynolds, former chief executive of the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), has been appointed to the Board of Australian Ethical Superannuation.

Reynolds brings over three decades of experience in responsible investing and superannuation to the new role, having spent nine years developing the PRI framework to more than 4,000 financial institution signatories and 180 global staff, as well as various leadership positions at FAIRR Initiative, the UN Global Compact Network Australia, Finance for Peace, and the Office of the NSW Anti-Slavery Commissioner.

“We are delighted to welcome Fiona’s deep global expertise in responsible investment to the Australian Ethical Superannuation Board,” Australian Ethical Chief Executive Officer, John McMurdo, said.

“The weight of consumer expectation on our sector is growing year on year, with most Australians now expecting their super and other investments to be invested responsibly2. Our fund continues to grow in response to this demand. Having Fiona’s significant talents on the AES Board will help guide our approach and growth over the coming years.”

Reynolds said she was looking forward to joining the fund’s superannuation board.

“Australians deserve retirement security, and the assurance that their superannuation is being invested for the good of people, animals, and the planet. Where we invest our money matters, and I encourage every Australian to feel empowered by that.”

Steve Gibbs, Chair and Non-Executive Director of the Australian Ethical Superannuation Board, welcomed Reynolds to the new position.

‘This appointment will bolster the Board’s advisory capability and adds credence to our ethical investment approach, which has been baked into our foundations since 1986.”
