Followed by a Reception at 2 pm
Location: Kittredge Central Hall, Kittredge Market, 2480 Kittredge Loop Dr., Boulder, CO 80309

Students at CU Boulder have been asking more questions about how CU's values align with its institutional investments, particularly when it comes to the oil and gas industry. This panel will explore whether a large investment fund with complex stakeholder groups can maximize both financial returns and positive social and environmental benefits, the trade offs of different approaches to shareholder activism, and how a strategic approach to investing applies to other important sustainability conversations.

Speakers include:

  • Betsy Moszeter, Chief Distribution & Marketing Officer and Portfolio Manager, Green Alpha Advisors
  • Devon Reynolds, PhD Candidate, CU Boulder
  • P. Noel Kullavanijaya, President of Capital Markets and Investor Networks, Equilibrium Capital
  • Shaun Davies, Associate Professor and Research Director of the Burridge Center for Finance, Leeds School of Business

Moderated by: Joshua Nunziato, PhD, Assistant Teaching Professor in the Social Responsibility and Sustainability division at Leeds

This event is co-sponsored by C-SEF and the Leeds Center for Ethics and Social Responsibility (CESR) in collaboration with the Leeds Burridge Center for Finance.
