Interviewed by Cliff Feigenbaum, GreenMoney Journal
Welcome to the latest in the 'GreenMoney Interviews' series. Recently I spoke with Liesel Pritzker Simmons of Blue Haven Initiative, as part of our new "Millennials and Money" issue. Liesel oversees an impact investing portfolio structured to generate financial returns and address social and environmental challenges.
The portfolio spans asset classes, from traditional equities and private equity to philanthropic programs. A longtime advocate for informed, conscientious investing, Liesel co-founded Blue Haven, a single-family office, with her husband, Ian Simmons. Their family office is considered to be one of the first to have been created with impact investing as its mission. She works closely with numerous organizations that support and advance the field of impact investing. She was a co-founder of The ImPact, a network of families committed to the conscientious stewardship of wealth. She also serves on the board of Toniic, which provides tools for investors to evaluate impact investments, and on the board and the investment committee of ImpactAssets.
