About us

Our partnership

We are three current sustainable investment practitioners with extensive experience in in fundamental analysis and portfolio management across equities and fixed income.  We share a belief that capital must be reallocated to achieve sustainable outcomes for society and a conviction that this will only be possible when companies, investors and analysts are motivated and equipped to integrate sustainability factors into ‘mainstream’ valuation and investment decision-making.  Having practiced this for over 50 years (between us) in some of the largest sell-side and asset management firms, we have come together to train others and to enable them to uncover the sustainable value that lies within the companies that they invest in.
