Georgia grew up in Edinburgh and (chasing the ‘David Attenborough dream’) studied Climate Change and Conservation under a Natural Sciences degree at Cambridge. While at university, she campaigned to transform how Cambridge’s £6B endowment pot was invested, calling for transparency as well as shareholder engagement on critical issues like gender and climate change. She has worked for Jupiter and Alliance Trust on sustainable asset management, as well as Fauna and Flora International on natural capital.
Georgia co-founded Tumelo in January 2018 with a mission to help every investor have positive impact. Tumelo’s solution gives retail investors and pension members visibility over their underlying fund holdings and a shareholder voice on issues they care about at companies they own, such as gender equality at Microsoft or climate change at Shell. Their white-label software plugs into existing investment platforms and pension portals, driving positive engagement between investment providers and their clients and, ultimately, influencing better stewardship across the asset management industry.
