Sustainability consultancy Sustainalytics has recruited Marika Stocker to bolster its sustainable finance offering in Singapore.

Stocker joins as senior manager of sustainable finance, moving from water resources management consultancy Sydro Consult, where she was a sustainable finance consultant.

Her role will be focused on managing and expanding Sustainalytics’ relationships with corporates in Asia Pacific. She will also be involved in assuring that green bonds are issued in line with industry best practices under the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS) sustainable bond and loan schemes. Sustainalytics is now eligible as an independent third-party reviewer of green bonds and loans for MAS.

She joins a firm that pulled out of Singapore in 2017 because of soft market conditions, but has retained a foothold in a market where it helped the Singapore stock exchange launch its first sustainability index in 2016. Sustainalytics was acquired by investment research firm Morningstar in July last year. 

During her time in Asia, Stocker has also worked for Global Compact Network Singapore, where she was sustainable finance manager for engagement and partnerships, advocating for businesses to consider the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in their planning. She co-authored a report on how to close the SDG financing gap in Southeast Asia.

Much of Stocker’s career to date has been spent as a debt capital market bonds originator in Vienna, Frankfurt and London where she managed different client portfolios in Asia Pacific, North America and Europe. She is experienced in debt capital market transactions, sustainable finance instruments, regulatory capital and rating advisory.
