Andrew Hill Investment Advisors, Inc., a boutique investment advisory firm with more than $150 million in assets under management, announced that President and Co-Founder Andrew D.W. Hill completed Columbia Business School’s Executive Education on “ESG Investing: Building and Managing a Sustainable Global Portfolio.”
This seven-week online program covered diverse aspects of sustainable investments, focusing on tools and techniques for the effective financial valuation and risk assessment of sustainable asset classes. It also addressed which asset classes are available for sustainable investing; key regulatory efforts in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing; and factors a portfolio manager should consider in investment analysis.
For his final project, Hill submitted a report on “Are Tesla Products the solution to 65% of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions?” The thesis of the project is that Tesla products (i.e. autos and solar panels) could eliminate 65% of GHG emissions and associated air and water pollution, while reducing the cost of powering a home and fueling a vehicle.
