Boulder, Colorado (January 22, 2015) – Green Alpha Advisors, an asset management firm that invests in innovation-based fossil-free public equity strategies, announced today that Betsy Moszeter has joined the Executive Team as Chief Operating Officer. With assets under management more than doubling in 2014, Green Alpha sought an industry leader to oversee operations and to support the company’s future growth plans, including expanded portfolio offerings and distribution platforms.
Betsy comes with 16 years of investment experience, in both traditional asset management and sustainable, responsible, impact (SRI) investing. She was most recently Senior Vice President and a Managing Member of First Affirmative Financial Network, LLC. Prior to First Affirmative, Betsy was the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Compliance Officer at TAMRO Capital Partners LLC in Alexandria, VA.
Betsy’s responsibilities at Green Alpha include strengthening the firm’s infrastructure to expand capacity and increase efficiencies and internal controls.
“Betsy has a proven track record of helping early- to mid-stage investment management firms take that next sustainable step in their growth,” said Green Alpha Co-founder Jeremy Deems. “It’s an ideal time for her to join our team. Her work at TAMRO Capital Partners, as it grew from $200 million to $2 billion, gives her the experience we need to accelerate our growth in 2015 and beyond.”
“I am honored and excited to be joining Green Alpha, and to help expand the firm’s capabilities in collaboration with the highly qualified team already in place,” said Ms. Moszeter. “Our Next Economy thesis is the right investment philosophy to address a changing climate and economy. With our strong and growing investor base we hope to make meaningful change and to capitalize on what we believe is the greatest investment opportunity of the century.”
