ImpactAlpha, June 8 – Impact investing’s original provocateur, Jed Emerson, is joining Tiedemann Advisors as global lead of impact investing.

The New York-based wealth advisor manages more than $25 billion in assets, including $3.5 billion in impact strategies.

“People will place bets on how long I will last in an institutional environment,” Emerson told ImpactAlpha. “But if we want to talk about how foundations, families and institutions can manage capital in greater alignment with their values, you’ve got to be in the room.”

CEO Michael Tiedemann said he has read Emerson’s work (see, “The Little Jed Book: Digging into the why of impact investing” and his memorable SOCAP keynote below).

“We’re unafraid to have someone bold,” he said.

Emerson will work with Jennifer Ayer and Brad Harrison, who lead Tiedemann’s U.S. impact investing strategy.
