Jeanne Stampe has joined Singapore’s central bank and financial regulatory authority, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), as green finance resource lead.

Her move comes six months after she left environmental group World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), where she led the Asia sustainable finance team.

While at WWF, Stampe agitated for change to green Singapore’s finance system. She led the formation of the Asia Sustainable Finance Initiative, a multi-stakeholder platform designed to bring the finance industry together with academia to help banks and investors strengthen their sustainable finance expertise. 

MAS has implemented measures to improve the sustainability credentials of Singapore’s finance system in recent years, including the publication of guidelines for integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into financial services.

Stampe will retain her position at University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, where took on a role as senior fellow at the Centre for Sustainable Finance, working remotely from Singapore, in March.

Over her career, Stampe has worked for firms including Goldman Sachs, Affinity Equity Partners, and Apax Partners.
