Louise Kooy-Henckel
Director, Impact Investing
Wellington Management

Louise heads Wellington Management’s sustainability efforts in EMEA. She works in close partnership with our global director of Wellington’s sustainable investment practice, which sets the research agenda and strategy for the firm’s sustainable investment practice. Her focus is across asset classes and includes ESG research and integration, impact investing, climate, and long-term engagement strategies. Based in London, her focus is to help drive the firm’s sustainability initiatives in Europe and partner with the firm’s clients on their sustainable investment programmes. In addition to her broader sustainability work, Louise also serves as an investment director specializing in impact investing. She is responsible for the integrity of the impact investment approaches through her oversight of portfolio positioning, performance, and risk exposures, as well as for conducting analysis to inform the investment process. She partners closely with investment teams to develop new products and client solutions and manages business issues. She also regularly meets with clients, prospects, and consultants to communicate investment philosophy, strategy, positioning and performance. Louise is a member of the firm’s Impact Steering Group as well as the Sustainable Investment Global Network, a cross-functional group of subject matter experts, which serves as thought partners and recommends sustainable investing best practices to product and investment teams. Given the importance of regulation in the sustainability field, she is also part of Wellington’s Sustainable Investment Regulatory Working Group.
