Robert Swift


I have worked as a fund manager in the investment industry for over 30 years.

I set up API (Active Portfolio Investors) in 2010 to provide active management to various ‘smart beta’ benchmarks. We generate a series of screens to identify attractive companies including the ESG dimension. Prior to this I managed $20bn as head of multi strategies at BTIM in Sydney, including SRI investments. I was previously jointly responsible for over $200bn while a Chief Investment Officer at Putnam Investments in Boston, USA. I have recently joined the investment committee at Local Government Super, an  $8bn  industry  superannuation fund, based in Sydney Australia. This superannuation fund has a definite commitment to sustainable investing

Robert is based in Sydney, Australia.
