Simon joined the PRI in 2018 and leads the organisation’s work on real assets. He works with real assets investors to support their understanding and implementation of responsible investment, including on issues such as climate change, human rights, and biodiversity.

Prior to joining the PRI, Simon worked for over 10 years at Control Risks, where he led a team providing political and social risk advisory support to investors and corporate clients in Latin America. This often involved carrying out pre- or post-transaction due diligence based on on-the-ground research and interviews for major investments and operations in the region, as well as gap analyses on clients’ social risk management and governance frameworks.

Simon holds a MSc in Latin American Politics from the University of London (Institute for the Study of the Americas) and a BA in Modern Languages (French and Spanish) from the University of Bristol.
