Cynthia Dalagelis, SVP Director of ESG Investments at Amalgamated Bank
Today’s program is about an unusual bank, so be prepared to expand your understanding of the role banks can play in growing sustainable investing. In fact, Amalgamated has been providing Socially Responsible banking and investment to the public for almost 100 years. It was founded by the Amalgamated Clothing and Textile Workers Union Amalgamated for those traditionally excluded from the banking system. And as of 2021 Amalgamated has $57 billion in custody and investment assets under management. On the program today I’m talking with Cynthia Dalagelis, SVP and Director of ESG Investments at Amalgamated Bank, about their ESG Responsifunds partnership with Invesco to offer a suite of funds that are leaders in social equity, gender equality and climate change. And we also talk about how Amalgamated is working to address the world’s most urgent challenges and bring about systemic long term change.
