As Head of Group Sustainability at VP Bank, I am responsible for the bank's sustainability activities, including corporate responsibility and its integration into the investment and lending business.

Previously, I was Assistant Professor for Sustainable Finance and Investment at the University of Liechtenstein. 

I am the author of the "ESG Guidelines for Swiss Pension Funds" published by ASIP (Swiss Association of Pension Funds) and was part of the working group that developed the corresponding "ESG Reporting Standard for Swiss Pension Funds".

I am also co-author of the study "Overview of the Climate Impact of Measures Taken by Financial Market Participants", which I wrote for the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (BAFU).

I am a frequent speaker at practitioner conferences and engage with various financial institutions and professional associations on sustainable investment issues.
