A $12.7B-AUM AM Adds an ESG Chief

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

A 33-year-old, $12.7-billion-AUM (as of March 31) mutual fund firm's team has found the shop's first ESG chief.

Today Eric Schoenstein, managing director and chief investment officer of Jensen Investment Management, confirms the recent promotion of Kevin Walkush to the newly created role of head of environmental, social and governance initiatives. Walkush first joined the Lake Oswego, Oregon-based firm in 2007 and most recently served as a portfolio manager.

Schoenstein describes ESG as "a fundamental component of [Jensen's] commitment to investing in quality businesses" and lauds Walkush's "passion for responsible investing.'

"He is the right person to help lead an even stronger era of delivering value on behalf of our clients who recognize the importance of ESG investing," Schoenstein states.

Walkush adds that ESG "is a critical aspect" in the investment management process at the employee-owned asset manager.

When he started at Jensen 14 years ago, Walkush served as an equity analyst. Earlier, he served in a similar role at Morningstar. He also worked at Lux Capital and Amazon. He is an alumnus of the University of Michigan and of Washington University in St. Louis.
