Aviva Investors, the global asset management business of British insurer Aviva plc, has appointed Mirza Baig to the new role of global head of ESG, subject to regulatory approval.

Baig will report directly to Mark Versey and join Aviva Investors’ executive team to lead and coordinate environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy, delivery and commercialization across the global business, including in Asia-Pacific. A key part of Baig’s new role will be to set firm-wide ESG strategy, bringing together the different ESG-focused teams working across Aviva Investors.
