Simon joined the PRI in June 2018, and leads the organisation’s work on real assets. He works with real assets investors to support their understanding and implementation of responsible investment. This has included projects looking at the role of infrastructure investing in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and on climate-related risks and opportunities for real assets investors.

This often involved carrying out pre- or post-transaction due diligence for major investments and operations in the region, as well as assessing clients’ social risk management and governance frameworks and performance.
Simon holds a MSc in Latin American Politics from the University of London (Institute for the Study of the Americas) and a BA in Modern Languages (French and Spanish) from the University of Bristol.
