Gary Greenberg leads the Emerging Markets Equity team at the international business of Federated Hermes. He has had the role of portfolio manager in the flagship fund for over 9 years, and recently passed the baton on this to his co-portfolio manager Kunjal Gala on September 1 of this year. He has had a long career in investment, but what has fascinated me most about Gary is his parallel focus on spirituality.
Our conversation traces Gary’s somewhat unconventional path into investing, how his spiritual journey has guided him throughout his life and the people who inspired it. We speak in particular about his views on sustainability and investing through this lens and why he considers this to be the only path that makes sense.
We also discuss why a 1980 Chevrolet Camaro amped up as a muscle car may not in fact be the compelling investment it sounds.
