Larissa Machiels

I was born in the US, but grew up in London to European parents. I studied Human Geography at university, a degree that fit my passion for environmental and social justice and then began my career in sustainable finance, where I now work as an ESG consultant for MJ Hudson.

In this role I advise investors (in particular private equity firms) on how to integrate ESG into their investment process through strategy sessions, reporting and policy work amongst other services.

Within my ESG work, I have a particular passion for Inclusion & Diversity and contribute to a working group within MJ Hudson to improve our internal expertise on the topic and in turn better support investors to raise their ambition levels for and understanding of I&D.
