Andy Howard

Head of Sustainable Investment


Andrew is responsible for thought leadership and ESG integration at Schroders, with oversight of the Sustainable Investment team and Schroders’ stewardship activity.

Andrew joined Schroders from Didas Research, an independent research firm he founded in 2013 focused on identifying companies well placed to sustain long-term earnings growth and equity market outperformance. The research approach at Didas was driven by the belief that in the long run, stock market outperformance, profitability and competitive advantage are intrinsically linked to companies’ abilities to adapt to changing social and environmental pressures.

Prior to this he spent six years at Goldman Sachs as Managing Director and Head of GS SUSTAIN Research, leading the team’s integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors with industrial, competitive and financial analysis.

Andrew also worked as a consultant at McKinsey & Co in New York where he advised financial institutions and was involved in the firms’ Business in Society work with Global Witness, a development-focused NGO.
