Aon hires responsible investing head

David Ingram joins from Wilshire

Aon has hired a head of responsible investing, the firm announced on Wednesday.

Filling that role is Daniel Ingram, who most recently was a senior vice-president at Wilshire, where he worked for five years.

In the role at Aon, Ingram will work with institutional clients, providing guidance on ESG risks and investment managers and “implement impactful portfolios across traditional and alternative asset classes”, the firm stated.

In a statement, Ingram noted that he is joining the firm “at a time when asset owners require more help than ever developing simple and practical ESG action steps”.

He will report to Heather Myers, who chairs the firm’s US investment committee and is head of nonprofit solutions.

In the role until May was Meredith Jones, who is now the ESG practice leader at EY. Aon had announced its environmental and social corporate consulting team in February 2020, which Jones had led.
