Matthew Fitzmaurice, Co-Founder & Managing Member at AWJ Capital Partners LLC
The movement to divest of fossil fuel–related companies has garnered a lot of attention recently. Some view it as a solution to climate change and its attendant issues. Fitzmaurice will discuss what has and can be achieved through divestment. He also will articulate why the movement needs to quickly move beyond divestment to additionally articulate “sustainable investment” goals. Fitzmaurice brings a valuable perspective to this important global discourse because he understands both the movement’s views and also the “institutional” investment community’s views. He hopes this new view might bridge the gap and allow results to be achieved more quickly.
