Incofin IM continues to proactively participate in SPTF debate through election of Dina Pons to SPTF BOD

2013/02/11

After an early nomination process that put forward qualified candidates, five candidates were selected for a final election round. All five of them have been very active members of the SPTF and supportive of social performance and showed leadership roles in social investor working groups. After a very close election the two spots went to Dina Pons and Jurgen Hammer.

Dina Pons is currently working at Incofin IM as Investment Manager for Southeast Asia, and Social Performance Management Coordinator. Throughout her work at Incofin IM, Dina worked on several SPM related projects. She focused for example on a full revamping of Incofin IM in-house social performance evaluation tool, called ECHOS. With the aim of bringing the tool in line with the latest developments in the SPM sphere, Dina worked on the creation of a special section on Responsible Pricing, using the same format as MFTransparency. Once the tool was developed, Dina has been in charge of training Incofin IM staff in order to ensure that all staff understand and implement SPM the same way. Since June 2012, Dina has been working along with two fellows from Oikocredit and Blue Orchard on the development and implementation of the research framework of the first study to assess over-indebtedness in Cambodia.  

Through the initiatives of David Dewez, Incofin was one of the earliest investors to develop its own social performance evaluation scorecard and has been an active member of the SPTF for the past four years. With Dina Pons as a new member of the Board of Directors of SPTF, Incofin IM is also delighted to host the SPTF (Social Performance Task Force) Social Investors Roundtable in its offices in Antwerp, Belgium on 27 February and is very keen on contributing to the ongoing vibrant debate on responsible finance.
