Martin Grosskopf

Vice President and Portfolio Manager Sustainable Investing, AGF Management Ltd

“An environmentally driven approach to corporate finance can’t outperform traditional approaches”, is what a traditional economist would say. However, the sustainable investment team at AGF argues against this inherently skeptical outlook, and in fact, is actively proving its inaccuracy on a day-to-day basis. Under Martin’s leadership the firm has ramped up their global sustainability strategy, increasing their AUM from this initiative from $800 Million to $1.8 Billion – the largest of any sustainability focussed investment program in Canada. His team has also set a new standard for publishing environmental footprint data for Canadian asset management companies – this data gives investors a better understanding the trade-offs between financial and environmental objectives in their decision-making processes.
