We harness our investment experience and our proprietary Environmental Productivity process to produce better outcomes for our investors

Terra Alpha was founded on the belief that our rapidly changing world requires an evolved approach to investing – one which recognizes that integration of the intrinsic value of our planet’s natural resources is not a compromise, but key to long-term financial returns and that active investing in, and engagement with, corporations on behalf of our investors will not only drive returns but catalyze more rapid positive change in our economy and help build a more sustainable future for all.

Our Inspiration

Finley Broaddus

Finley Broaddus was a senior in high school who planned to study Environmental Policy at the College of William & Mary when she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in January of 2014. Her fight with Cholangiocarcinoma ended five months later.

Finley set up Finley’s Green Leap Forward on February 26, 2014 to “support local and global efforts that have a positive impact on the environment, moving us forward towards a healthy, sustainable planet.” Finley has moved friends and strangers alike to give back to the environment not only through the Green Leap Forward Fund but also through personal action.

Finley was a close friend of several members of our team, and for all of us, she serves as an inspiration in our work on a daily basis.

(Note: Terra Alpha Investments’ co-founder Tim Dunn and Advisory Board member emerita Ellen Stofan are members of the Green Leap Forward board.)
