Corli joined the Johannesburg Stock Exchange’s Legal Counsel and Strategy Division in August 2001 following four years as legal advisor to SAFEX (The South African Futures Exchange). Over the years, Corli’s responsibilities have expanded into various strategic arenas, and as a result she has since 2002 been responsible for the development and operation of the JSE’s Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Index, a pioneering initiative through which the JSE has been providing critical thought leadership around sustainability and responsible investment. Since February 2012, Corli has moved into the Strategy and Public Policy Division of the JSE, from where she oversees the SRI Index and the development of a strategic sustainability framework for the JSE. Corli has authored articles in various local and international publications, and speaks locally and globally regarding responsible investment, the SRI Index and its development, and sustainability concerns generally. She represents the JSE on various committees, including the Institute of Directors’ Sustainable Development Forum, the Integrated Sustainability Task Team for the Third King Report on Corporate Governance 2009, the Integrated Reporting Committee of South Africa as well as its working group. During 2011 she was a finalist for South Africa’s Most Influential Women in Business and Government Awards 2011/2012. Corli holds legal degrees from the Rand Afrikaans University (now the University of Johannesburg), as well as an International Capital Markets Qualification from the London Securities Institute.
