  • Steve leads Aviva Investors' Global Responsible Investment team, which is responsible for integrating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) across all asset classes and regions of c£350bn of assets under management.
  • "People’s pensions, savings and investments in the UK are actually invested in financing a future that no-one wants to see, but no-one really realises."
  • Steve believes in the power of pension funds to deliver net-zero, despite their long dependency on fossil fuels: "If you want to save the world, if you walk from the companies that are controversial, your conscience will be clear but you won’t have actually encouraged the business to change. That’s the dilemma."
