This year, we are pleased to have Mr. Paul Hilton, Partner, Portfolio Manager, and Research Analyst at Trilium Asset Management as our keynote speaker. Paul will present "Investing for a Better World: The business case and the environmental imperative for sustainable investing."
Trillium is the oldest investment firm exclusively focused on sustainable and responsible investing. Founded in 1982, Trillium was established to provide a space for clients to invest their money in alignment with their values, and has become one of the largest SRI investment firms in the U.S.
Paul started his career as an Analyst with the Council on Economic Priorities, a nonprofit known for the influential consumer guidebook “Shopping for a Better World.” He is the former board chair of US SIF, the U.S. membership association for professionals, firms, institutions and organizations engaged in socially responsible and sustainable investing.
