Dr. Susanne van de Wateringen, Senior Analyst Sustainable Investments at ING

Susanne van de Wateringen is a sustainability professional with some 15 years’ experience. Since 2006, she has been working for ING, first as an Environmental Social Risk Advisor for the Credit Risk Department of ING Group. In that setting, she assessed lending deals including Equator Principles project finance-related transactions and contributed to ING’s ESR Framework. Since 2011, she is part of ING’s Investment Office as Senior Analyst Sustainable Investments. Her plead is that assessing for sustainability leads to better performance of investment portfolio’s as sustainability is a natural component of modern risk management. The result: a company better suited to grab future opportunities. The results of CS ING SRI Index Fund – for which ING provides the eligible sustainable universe – seem to prove her point – it has defeated MSCI World for years on a row. Susanne is a political scientist and has a PhD in business administration (University of Amsterdam).
