Sierra Club Oct. 4: “Fossil Fuel Divestment and Responsible Investing”

October 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On Wednesday, Oct. 4, the Wenoca Group Sierra Club presents Peter Krull, CEO and Director of Investments at Earth Equity Advisors (formerly Krull & Company). Krull will discuss fossil fuel divestment and responsible investing. You’ll learn how to judge different investment opportunities and pick those that are most closely aligned with your values. This event is free and open to the public.

Location: Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville, 1 Edwin Place (off of Charlotte)
Time: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Krull will explain what performance might look like for responsible investments and will also look “under the hood” of your mutual fund. He’ll address portfolio screening, shareholder advocacy and community investing, and will share some real-life examples.

After launching his career in the financial services industry with Merrill Lynch in 1998, Krull founded Krull & Company in 2004 out of his desire to help clients align their investments with their values. The company has since grown to well over $50 million in assets with clients in 22 states. Client investments are socially and environmentally responsible and fossil-fuel-free.

In 2009, Krull was selected by the Savannah Business Report & Journal as one of its “40 under 40” business leaders. In 2015, he traveled to Washington, DC with Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) to advocate for environmentally responsible legislation. A recognized authority in his field, Krull has been quoted in the Washington Post, US News & World Report, and various local newspapers.
