About Paul Herman:
Professor R. Paul Herman is a globally recognized leader in investing to pursue positive impact and profit. The HIP (Human Impact + Profit) Investor team advises investors and advisors on the impact and ESG (Environmental, social and governance) opportunities across 7,000 stocks, 100,000 bonds, and 2,000 funds, and manages the Higher Impact Portfolios, including fossil-fuel-free and great-place-to-work strategies. HIP’s Impact ESG Ratings help drive the Newsweek Green Rankings and the Peter Drucker Index.
Prof. Herman founded HIP Investor in 2006 to show that investments across all asset classes can solve human, social and environmental problems — and can be more profitable and less risky than investing that is extractive of people, natural resources and trust. Prof. Herman’s 2010 book (The HIP Investor; Make Bigger Profits by Building a Better World; published by John Wiley & Sons) is included in 27 university, MBA and MPA curricula worldwide on finance, capital markets and impact investing.
Prof. Herman is a graduate of the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania, advised Boards and executives while with McKinsey and Company, found and funded social entrepreneurs at Ashoka.org, and shaped and measured impact investments at eBay founder Pierre Omidyar’s Network. Herman is an advisor to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), Net Impact and Sustainable Brands. Prof. Herman’s insights have been published in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fortune, Forbes, BusinessWeek, CNN, Reuters, Morningstar.com and CNBC.
