A panel of investments professionals will discuss how the college’s endowment is invested, and the place of fossil fuels in its holdings, at a discussion to be held on Monday, Feb. 24, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Campus Center Carroll Room.
Sponsored by the President’s Office, the event is the third in a series of campus conversations in relation to the fossil fuels divestment campaign. Previous sessions, in the fall semester, were organized by CEEDS and the students of Divest Smith College.
Panelists for the February 24 discussion are Alice Handy, CEO of Investure, the firm that manages Smith’s investments; trustee Margaret Eisen ’75, chair of the Smith College Investment Committee; and Bob Litterman, chairman of the risk committee at Kepos Capital and a noted speaker on the pricing of carbon emissions and climate risk.
President McCartney will open the session, which will include the opportunity for Q & A.
