  • " Socially-responsible means something different to absolutely every person on earth"
  • According to Longsplice's definition: “Good Corporate Citizens practice Respect:
    • for the environment
    • for human and workers' rights
    • for shareholders
    • for the less fortunate"
  • "I've found an aspect of finance that's very modeling and simulation - oriented, just like what I did as a chip designer, so in a whole new field I was right at home using skills I seemed to be pretty good at"
  • Advice for aspiring entrepreneurs? "Go for it" and "Have savings before you commit to supporting yourself"
  • "By the time I retire-- again-- I want 'socially-responsible mutual fund' to be redundant. I want all investing to be socially responsible."
