Marathon does not have a dedicated team focusing on ESG integration at firm level. Instead, ESG factors are integrated into the investment process by the individuals on the investment team. As such, all portfolio managers and analysts or trainee portfolio managers are responsible to some degree for integrating ESG research into their investment approach.

Additionally, Ben Kottler, Client Manager for North America, takes the lead on ESG. Whilst the majority of Ben's time is spent servicing Marathon's clients he is responsible for overseeing ESG policies and procedures across the firm. Additionally, within the Japan team we have one analyst focused on corporate engagement, Masanaga (Masa) Kono. Masa is responsible for engaging with Marathon's investee companies in Japan to strive to improve their corporate governance practices for the ultimate benefit of Marathon's clients.
