"We ourselves, I think, built unsustainable companies by maximizing profit." - Jeff Ubben T'83

Duke Impact Investing Group (DIIG) is incredibly excited to host an Exclusive Live Event with Duke Trustee Jeff Ubben (T'83), in a fireside Q&A conversation with Duke Student Government President Tommy Hessel (T'21). After founding a $16 billion hedge fund, Mr. Ubben left his prestigious position at Value Act Capital to pursue high-impact social and environmental investing. He has served on the Board of Directors of over 15 public companies, including Twenty-First Century Fox, AES Corporation, and Gartner Group, is a contributing member of the World Economic Forum, and now leads the Duke's Climate Change and Sustainability Task Force.

He will join us on Tuesday, February 23rd from 5-6PM ET. Spots are filling up quickly -- register to reserve yours at This conversation will not be recorded.
In this chat, Jeff will talk about whether there is a tradeoff between a successful career and impact as well as the reason he left the prestigious hedge fund he started.
