Louise O'Halloran is stepping down as the executive director of the Responsible Investment Association Australasia.
She has been at the helm of the association for 11 years and was its first employee.
The RIAA's membership represents over A$650 billion in funds under management and covers the investment chain spectrum - from advisers and dealer groups, to investment managers, superannuation funds, faith-based investors, research firms, asset consultants and insurance companies.
In her time at RIAA, she has pioneered a range of unique initiatives designed to accelerate responsible investment knowledge and uptake.
In collaboration with her board and industry colleagues, she established the world's first independently audited certification program for responsible investment products and services; produced a web-based financial adviser course in association with Ethical Investment Services and SAI Global; delivered RIAA's popular international conferences; and launched the RI Academy, a structured, web-based curriculum which now has over 600 users worldwide.
"RIAA's success is a tribute to the many passionate, intelligent and tenacious members of the Association who have worked so hard to elevate responsible investment to where it is today - an industry widely respected and admired," she says.
Sarah Clawson will be acting in the role of interim RIAA general manager.
