The Network for Sustainable Financial Markets is an International, non-partisan network of finance sector professionals, academics and others who have an active interest in long-term investing. The recurring crises recently experienced in our financial markets are not isolated incidents. Rather, this instability is evidence that the financial market system is in need of well thought-out reform so that it can better serve its core purpose of creating long-term sustainable value.
Cary Krosinsky has been appointed as NSFM’s first Executive Director. Until recently, the Senior Vice President at Trucost, Cary has decided to take up a portfolio career with teaching (Columbia University), advisory work and this role. His many skills make him a good fit with NSFM’s needs and he has generously agreed to donate his time for a few months so NSFM can secure foundation support.
Having experienced the many benefits of having a paid (albeit part-time) Co-ordinator, fully aware of how important it is that we get financial markets to be a bigger part of the solution, and cognisant of how much a group like NSFM – which is made up of individual investment professionals and others who are not constrained by organisational positions – can add, NSFM has taken the decision to scale-up. After 4 years of operating on a totally voluntary basis, they think NSFM has both proved its additionality.
