Kelly Hirsch, CFA

Senior ESG Analyst

Kelly is responsible for ESG analysis of the policies and practices of VCIM’s portfolio companies.

Prior to joining VCIM, Kelly worked in a variety of roles in retail banking, where she was exposed to the challenges local businesses face in improving their environmental and social performance.

Kelly holds a bachelor of environmental science from the University of Guelph and a diploma in accounting from the University of British Columbia. She is a CFA charterholder and is also certified as a Responsible Investment Specialist (RIS) with the Responsible Investment Association.

Most of the companies we research and engage with want to create long-term value for their customers and shareholders. Seeing companies implement changes based on VCIM’s shareholder engagement is inspiring.
