Fred joins us as Chief Investment Officer and will take on responsibilities for Tribe’s award-winning investment process: building and managing portfolios that do well by doing good.

Fred is most closely aligned to Tribe Theme 1 – Environment & Ecology. Fred believes that corporate stakeholders – customers, suppliers, employees – understand that ignoring negative environmental externalities is a growing business risk, both reputationally and operationally, and the investment community in turn is beginning to realise this could influence the cost of and access to capital.
