Kate Hewitt

Consultant, Stewardship & Engagement


I started working with Castlefield in March 2016 after graduating from Newcastle University with a first class Biology Degree. As part of my degree, I focused on the science of conservation and environmental issues have become very important to me. An attraction of Castlefield was their Thoughtful investment process which encompasses a number of approaches aimed at developing better business practices through responsible investing. I've been directly involved in shaping this process with Castlefield and extending it further.

I have found the great support of the team at Castlefield very helpful in learning about the business and I am currently working remotely whilst I study for an MA. My work with Castlefield focuses particularly on stewardship, engagement and ESG issues. I am also a keen contributor to the blog section of the Castlefield website.

In my spare time I enjoy skiing, walking my three dogs and making use of my Manchester City season tickets. I am also a bit of a classic car enthusiast and like to spend sunny afternoons cruising in my little MGB.
