SAM, an investment boutique that manages the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) line, has appointed Guido Giese as head of indexes.
Giese is responsible for the development of the DJSI range, which SAM manages in collaboration with S&P Dow Jones Indices. Giese will also oversee global sales, licensing, partnerships and client services and will report directly to Michael Baldinger, CEO of SAM.
“I am very keen to work for the leading provider of corporate sustainability benchmarks,” Giese said. “The DSJI have always been at the forefront of providing professional and objective benchmarks and I look forward to continuing the development of the index family.”
DJSI was launched in 1999.
