Frédéric Ducoulombier is ESG Director with index provider Scientific Beta in Singapore and a member of the company’s executive committee. In this role, he authors blueprints for the company’s climate change and responsible investing offering and manages related data acquisition. He is also a chair of the EDHEC Business School / Scientific Beta Advanced ESG and Climate Investing research chair. In previous roles, he designed Scientific Beta’s ESG incorporation approach, led the product design and negotiations that brought the company its first EUR10bn of assets tracking ESG indices, and created the methodology underpinning a successful family of sustainability ETFs. Beyond ESG incorporation, he introduced new approaches for factor investing that have led to peer-reviewed publication, remain at the heart of the company’s offering and have been adopted by competitors. He also originated the company’s compliance framework and served as lead adviser along the CEO in the negotiations leading to the sale of the company to the Singapore Exchange (SGX) in 2020.
