"Our Energy Transition Group will accelerate our leadership position as the global economy undergoes structural changes in how energy is produced and consumed."

The group will accelerate BMO Capital Markets' participation in the economy's energy transition by providing knowledge, tools and support, including research from BMO's Climate Institute, to support the firm's various industry groups as they engage with clients on their energy transition endeavors. It will also draw on industry sector specialists initially from within BMO's Energy, Power Utilities & Infrastructure, Metals & Mining, Industrials, Food Consumer & Retail and Sustainable Finance groups to provide a broad spectrum of expertise regarding energy transition developments and opportunities, including those in:

  • Hydrogen
  • Energy transition finance
  • Carbon capture, use and sequestration
  • Renewable power
  • Electric mobility / EVs
  • Nuclear power
  • Nature-based solutions
  • Energy demand-side management
  • Fuel cells
  • Electricity storage
  • Low carbon fuels
  • Energy transition minerals
  • Renewable natural gas
  • Circular economy solutions including waste-to-value processes

The new group will be co-headed by Aaron Engen, Vice Chair, Investment & Corporate Banking and Jonathan Hackett, Managing Director and Head, Sustainable Finance. Both will report to Shane Fildes, Managing Director and Head of Investment Banking.

The Energy Transition Group will also include BMO's existing Sustainable Finance group including its Sustainable Finance Advisory and Impact Investing platforms.
