You will advise on legal and regulatory issues relating to the manufacture, development and maintenance of Macquarie Asset Management's ESG-focused funds, across both public and private markets and draft ESG product disclosures in line with regulatory and market standards (e.g. CFA Institute). Finally, you will review and approve sustainability-related reporting, marketing materials and disclosures as well as attend board meetings and provide business updates on sustainability legal matters.
