Jake Hallam

Associate, Climate & ESG Capital Markets
Jake supports NatWest Markets’ financial institutions customers on a number of different aspects within the sustainable finance space including the structuring and execution of sustainable finance transactions, developing sustainable finance strategies, sustainability reporting & investor engagement.

Previously, Jake was an Associate in the Corporate & Financial Institutions Loan Markets team in NatWest Corporate & Institutions, working on the origination, structuring and execution of loans for NatWest’s large corporates, mid corporates, funds and insurance clients. Prior to leaving the team, Jake also began to focus on developments in the sustainability-linked loan (SLL) market and carried this experience with him into the Climate & ESG Capital Markets team. 

Jake started with NatWest 5 years ago on the Structured Finance graduate programme – a two-year rotational programme where he gained experience across a number of desks including Debt Capital Markets Origination & Leveraged Finance. His very first role in the bank was in the Infrastructure and Project Finance team where he supported lending to renewable energy projects and key infrastructure assets, many of which delivered positive environmental and social impact. From the outset Jake has been able to combine his personal passion for sustainability with his work in the loan markets and debt capital markets and continues to do so in his role today.
