Auriel Capital Management, a London-based hedge fund manager, is expanding its offerings by adding Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investment strategies for institutional investors in Europe and North America. To lead the new ESG strategies initiative, the firm has hired Adam Seitchik as a Managing Director.

Mr. Seitchik joins Auriel Capital from Trillium Asset Management where he was Chief Investment Officer, overseeing approximately $1 billion in investment portfolios that integrated ESG principles. Trillium is a Boston-based investment management firm with a focus on socially responsible investing. From 2000 to 2003, Mr. Seitchik was a Chief Global Strategist and Managing Director in Deutsche Asset Management’s London office. In this role, he led and managed an asset allocation team that was accountable for over $60 billion in assets.

Larry Abele, co-founder of Auriel commented that “Over the past five years Adam has built a successful track record in equity investment at Trillium and will be bringing his experience in responsible investing to Auriel's equity platform. We worked closely together at Deutsche Asset Management where Adam was the Chief Global Strategist in London. His knowledge of ESG risks and opportunities will integrate extremely well into Auriel’s systematic approach to equity investment and will allow us to provide genuinely innovative ESG solutions for our clients.”

Adam Seitchik added “Some of the largest institutions in the world have signed up to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, committing to the consideration of ESG issues in investment analysis and decision-making processes. Auriel’s platform is ideally suited to sophisticated institutional investors seeking crafted ESG solutions that meet their evolving fiduciary responsibilities.”

Auriel Capital was founded in 2004 by Larry Abele, Anoosh Lachin, and Asif Noor. Prior to founding the firm, the three founders managed fundamental systematic strategies at Deutsche Asset Management. For more information, please visit the firm’s investor profile below:
