Rob is also responsible for covering the healthcare sector for Tribe’s direct equities.

Rob’s values are most closely aligned to Tribe Theme – Environment & Ecology. However, the Goals he is most passionate about are in Tribe Theme – Enterprise & Infrastructure, Goal 8 (decent work & economic growth) and 12 (responsible consumption & production). Rob believes innovation is fundamental to solving the SDGs, with the most likely source of this innovation being in the private sector. Whilst, history shows that businesses can need influencing to operate in a sustainable way, he thinks the most effective mechanism of doing this is by dictating the capital flows that they receive – and that it’s the responsibility of asset owners and investors to allocate capital to companies that promote “sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth” (Goal 8).
