Putnam Hires ESG Expert In Push Toward Sustainable Investing

Boston-based Putnam Investments has hired Katherine Collins as head of sustainable investing.

Collins joins Putnam from Honeybee Capital, an ESG-focused research firm, where she served as CEO.  Prior to Honeybee, she served as a portfolio manager and director of equity research at Fidelity. She also authored “The Nature of Investing,” a book that establishes a framework for aligning investment practice with natural systems science.

In her new role, Collins will be responsible for overseeing Putnam’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment approach, which the company says will include institutional and retail mutual fund strategies.
