Weatherley-White joins Align Impact as CIO
Weatherley-White is an influential leader in impact investing. He brings more than 30 years’ experience as an investment professional and thought leader, harnessing the power of the capital markets to create a more inclusive, sustainable planet.
“My goal is to bring 30 years worth of experience and leadership in financial services to a firm that’s growing quickly; that’s young, passionate and dedicated to impact investing,” Weatherley-White told Crain Currency.
Most recently, Weatherley-White was a founding partner of the Caprock Group, the wealth advisory firm serving a small number of families and foundations around the world. After leaving Caprock, he had all intentions of leading a quieter life.
“I thought I was going to retire,” Weatherly-White said. “I am under contract to write a book, and my wife and I bought an eco-estate in Mexico where we now live.”
But after reading the job description, Weatherley-White felt compelled to learn more. After several conversations with co-founder and CEO Jenn Kenning, he knew this was an opportunity he wanted to pursue, as he believed in its core mission.
“It is self-evident that Align is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion, and that’s really exciting to me,” he said. “Impact investing went from hope to proof 20 years ago and has been going through the process of proof to scale ever since then.”
Weatherley-White’s addition allows Align to offer more clients a highly customized experience that places their values and portfolio needs at the center, Kenning said.
