Fink’s Green Firm Hires Agriculture, Forestry Team

Jan 29 2010 | 10:40am ET

Former Man Group CEO Stanley Fink’s green investment and private equity firm is expanding its renewable ambit with a trio of hires.

Earth Capital Partners, which Fink founded in 2008 after retiring from Man and joining hedge fund International Standard Asset Management, has hired Bosworth Monck, Gabriel Montana and Richard Smith to focus on sustainable agriculture. Monck, previously CEO at IBIA Asset Management and chief operating officer of hedge fund OLEA Capital Partners, will serve as head of sustainable agriculture and forestry, while Montana and Smith were named partners.

The new agriculture team is planning a series of institutional-grade funds focused on agriculture, forestry and biodiversity. Geographically, the group’s particular focus will be on Latin America.

“Appointing this new agriculture team takes us one step closer to having a diversified range of sustainable investment opportunities for institutional investors,” Fink said. “One of the positive developments to come out of Copenhagen was an agreement regarding deforestation and reforestation, and this will make the sector even more attractive for investors.”
