Ted Roosevelt V
Founding Partner, MSM
“I was first introduced to climate change in the late 80’s, when my parents started talking about it at dinner. At the time it was a niche idea, rarely mentioned outside of environmental circles. But climate change is now impacting our world and economy. Investors with medium to long term outlooks can no longer ignore its impacts.”
Ted co-founded Redwood Grove Capital on the belief that capital markets remain the most powerful driver of change. Prior to Redwood Grove Capital, Ted was a managing director at GoldenTree Asset Management, a hedge fund specializing in high-yield, distressed, and structured credit investments. From 2001 to 2010, Ted worked as a senior vice president in Lehman Brothers’ and Barclays Capital’s Distressed Research and Leverage Finance Groups. Ted is on the National Board of Trust for Public Land, and a Trustee at the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library. He also serves on the President’s Council of the Woodwell Climate Research Center, and Stanford Graduate School of Business’s Racial Equity Task Force. He has a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Princeton University and a Master of Science in Management from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

“My desire to bridge environmental risk and opportunity with investing stems from the Greek word “oikos,” the root word for both ecology and economics. It meant “hearth and home”. Our society must link these two words which have been too far separated for too long.”
