Resolution Capital, the specialist real assets investment manager, has expanded its investment team by hiring Morgan Ellis as an ESG analyst.

Ellis has extensive investment research experience specialising in global real estate and companies in the materials sector.

Most recently, he was vice president, ESG research at MSCI, focused on sustainable impact investing, mapping climate risk within global property and power assets, testing carbon regulation scenarios on ASX200 companies' performance, and assessing modern slavery regulations and their impact on investors.

Before joining MSCI in 2014, Ellis was an environmentally sustainable design engineer at Aurecon and ITC Group and a sustainability consultant at the London-based AECOM.

"This new role will further support our ongoing commitment to thorough ESG research and implementation across our listed real estate and infrastructure strategies," said Resolution Capital managing director Sonia Luton.

"Within the listed real estate and infrastructure sectors, robust ESG credentials can be a major driver of superior investment outcomes. This has been demonstrated by many of Resolution Capital's investee companies in recent years, and there is no doubt this will continue in the years to come."

Resolution Capital integrates ESG considerations into its investment process to align with the six Principles of the United Nations Organisation initiated Principles for Responsible Investment. The firm has been a signatory to UNPRI since 2010.

Resolution Capital is also a member of the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) and benchmarks its Global Property Securities portfolio GRESB rating versus the relevant benchmark rating.
