Andrew Rodriguez, CEO & Chief Investment Officer
Andrew Rodriguez started his career as a pastor, but soon found that he wanted to apply the ethical lens of social and environmental justice that experience gave him in a different way. Before founding Change Finance, Andrew did ESG research and analysis for the Highwater Global Fund, designed clean investment portfolios for the Keel Asset Management, then went on to design and manage such portfolios at Principium. He now brings that expertise to Change Finance to make ESG, Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), and fossil fuel free portfolios available to a wider audience by delivering them as publicly oriented, performance- and impact-oriented funds. Andrew holds an MBA in Sustainable Systems and Impact Investing from Bainbridge Graduate Institute, the first “Green MBA” program.
