Job Description

Regnan is currently seeking an ESG analyst to join our Melbourne team, participating in our research and engagement activities.

The Company:

Regnan is a trusted advisor to investors on all aspects of investment stewardship. The company, with 11 staff in offices in Sydney and Melbourne, was established by institutional investors interested in the long-term performance of companies and the market in which they invest. Our clients include major Australian superannuation funds and asset managers both large and boutique. Regnan’s key activities are:

· Research: Regnan conducts high quality, substantive and value-driven research on the S&P/ASX200 in addition to thematic research. Regnan’s research aims to break new ground / add to the market, rather than duplicate what already exists.

· Engagement & Advocacy: Regnan’s mandate includes identifying and assessing ESG risks and engaging with Australian listed companies to improve corporate and market performance and thus long-term investment returns. Regnan acts behind the scenes, cultivates relationships with directors, meets with boards and senior management based on priorities identified by our own in-house research, and is a public voice on ESG issues across the market.

· Advisory: Regnan assists large institutional investors to embed ESG considerations within the investment process, providing expert advice on specific ESG risks, development of ESG labelled financial products, policy and communications advice through deep and ongoing partnerships with a small number of select clients.

The Role

Research responsibilities include analysis of company-level ESG factors and value-drivers for ASX-listed stocks, monitoring of company newsflow, thematic ESG research, preparation of client communications (such as stock and thematic reports), participating in client briefings and responding to client queries.
