Carney will head the US$550 billion asset manager’s environmental, social and governance investments. (The Logic)
Talking point: This is just one of many jobs for the former Bank of Canada and Bank of England governor. He’ll continue to serve as an “informal” advisor to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnston as well as the United Nations Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance. Many speculated that Carney could become Canada’s finance minister earlier this month. That job went to Chrystia Freeland, but Carney isn’t ruling out running for office one day. He’ll start at Brookfield in October and work out of Ottawa.
