Kate Murtagh on sustainable investment

Tom Fox | March 11, 2019

Welcome to Compliance Week’s “Top Minds in Compliance” podcast—our weekly conversation with a leader in the compliance field. This week, columnist Tom Fox chats with Kate Murtagh, chief compliance officer at the Harvard Management Company.

The HMC manages Harvard University’s financial assets, most notably its endowment. Murtagh explains Harvard’s three-pronged approach to sustainable investment, part of which is considering how environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors affect the university’s decision-making process.

“We believe that considering all relevant data, including ESG factors, is not only in line with our fiduciary duty to our client, but really something that we see a lot of smart investors doing today,” Murtagh says.
