Growing up in South-East Asia he has had experience teaching and volunteering, and prior to Tribe was an investment analyst at Schroders where he focused on global and emerging market Multi-Asset products.

Fred’s values are most closely aligned to Tribe Theme 1 – Environment & Ecology.

Mark’s values are aligned with Tribe Theme 1: Environment & Ecology, particularly life on land, climate action and life below water. Having gained a Masters in Agricultural Economics, specialising in environmental cost accounting techniques, Mark’s career path took him first into rural development projects in East Africa, before moving to become one of the UK’s first specialist equity analysts specialising in sustainability at Jupiter Asset Management in 1989.

Suzanne’s values are aligned with Tribe Theme 2: Education & Equality, particularly gender equality. She is deeply committed to helping people understand and embrace the opportunities and challenges around women and girls and how gender can be a factor of analysis in all investment decisions. Suzanne believes that there are women in leadership, governance, and value chains who are undervalued in investment, and that paying attention to gender can help investors spot opportunities as well as risks ahead of others. This imperative of addressing gender equality and social issues that disproportionately affect women and girls, married with the massive societal and economic opportunity to bring women into full force in business, can represent a tremendous opportunity for impact as well as financial return. Suzanne has over 30 years’ experience in sustainable business, social investment, emerging markets and domestic entrepreneurship, and the linkages between philanthropy and international development with investment. Her career started at IBM and spanned several tech startups, her own successful e-learning company, and a portfolio career as an active impact investor herself, board member, adviser, and consultant. She founded Women Effect, which has now transitioned to Wharton Business School, where she is a Senior Gender Lens Investing Adviser as well.
Tim’s values are aligned with Tribe Theme 1: Environment & Ecology. He believes that averting the environmental crisis and developing a sustainable partnership with our Earth is the most important outcome of this century. Tim doesn’t believe creating the kind of long lasting global change we need will come from a single solution. He believes it will come from a wildly diverse ecosystem of passionate people and ideas. Since selling his travel business, Tim is focusing his time on helping grow future change-makers in his Venture Partner roles at EF (Europe’s top incubator) and at Zinc VC (the worlds first impact incubator).
