Marsh has appointment of Charles Sincock as environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy leader of its UK advisory business. Based in London, Sincock reports to Nigel Somerville, head of advisory for UK and Ireland.
In this role, Sincock will work with existing ESG teams across the Marsh McLennan group to design and implement strategies to address the latest ESG challenges facing clients, helping them build resilience in the face of new and evolving ESG-related exposures and enabling them to access enhanced risk and insurance benefits.
Sincock joined Marsh from Capco, where he was the global ESG delivery lead and UK ESG lead. He previously worked in green infrastructure after starting his financial services career as a mergers and acquisitions banker at Dresdner Kleinwort and Bank of America. He has served as an officer in the British Army and is a chartered mechanical engineer.
“With an expanding scope of stakeholders requiring greater transparency over how businesses are addressing climate-related and sustainability goals, robust ESG strategies are critical for organisations seeking to gain a competitive advantage and secure optimal terms from the insurance market,” Somerville said. “Charles’s longstanding experience will be invaluable as we guide clients on their ESG strategies.”
“Marsh is committed to building novel data-driven ESG initiatives, particularly those that help highlight where gaps exist in organisations’ strategies,” Sincock said. “With increasing reporting and governance obligations, ESG will stay top of the agenda for boardrooms and risk managers for the foreseeable future. In this uncertain operating environment, I look forward to leading the team at Marsh to help clients be on the front foot when it comes to managing their ESG risks and enabling them to succeed.”
