A former computer chip design engineer turns his math skills toward managing a socially-responsible mutual fund. Longsplice Investments is a mutual fund company that explicitly emphasizes selection of portfolio companies that are good corporate citizens.
" 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 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."
