The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), a United Nations-backed network working to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles into investing, has appointed former AMP Capital deputy CEO David Atkin as its next chief executive.

Atkin will succeed Fiona Reynolds, who stepped down after nine years at the helm to move back to her native Australia. Atkin will move into the role on 10 December 2021, and relocate from Australia to PRI’s London headquarters in March.

Atkin previously served as CEO of three Australian asset owners: Cbus, ESS Super and JUST SUPER, but most recently served as deputy CEO of investment manager AMP Capital.

Martin Skancke, chair of the PRI, said Atkin was “ideally suited to lead PRI at a time of continued growth in its presence and membership around the world” in a statement, released on Monday.

Reynolds will stay on in an advisory capacity at PRI until early 2022.
