With over 30 years of experience as a financial advisor, Jeff began realigning Gitterman Wealth Management, LLC towards sustainable investing in 2015. In 2020, the firm launched the Gitterman Asset Management brand to house its rapidly expanding ESG strategies, thought leadership, and practice management offerings for the financial advisory and institutional markets. Over the past several years, the firm has hosted many ESG and climate-focused events for financial advisors, including conferences at the United Nations Headquarters, the ESG Playbook series of webinars in partnership with RIA Channel, and most recently, The Great Repricing: Financial Advice in the Age of Climate Change.
Jeff is also the co-host of TheIMPACT TV show, which airs on fintech.tv and Bloomberg TV. Noted as an “ESG expert” by Financial Advisor magazine, he has also been featured in the past in Barron’s, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and CNN, among many others. He also speaks frequently about ESG and climate-focused investing at conferences throughout the U.S., and in 2018 was named RIA “Thought Leader of the Year” by WealthManagement.com.
Jeff deeply believes that the migration of investor capital towards ESG, Sustainable, and Impact investing is one of, if not the most effective way to help realize the United Nations-supported Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and he is committed to helping both investors and other financial professionals navigate this rapidly growing landscape. He is also the author of Beyond Success: Redefining the Meaning of Prosperity, and an Associate Producer of the feature documentary film, Planetary.
