COVID-19 and the role of sustainability leadership
In this Fiduciary Investors series podcast Amanda White talks to Joel Prohin who is director of the portfolio management division at Caisse des Depots in France. Prohin heads the portfolio management team and is responsible for €140 billion across fixed income, equities, real estate and private equity.
They talk about how Caisse is positioning the portfolio during this time of uncertainty and how sustainability as a long-term issue, can be prioritised at a time when short-term risks, and survival, are taking priority for many investors.

He manages five asset management teams and 60 staff with most of the assets of the fund managed internally. He is also member of the French institutional investors association’s strategic committee.
