A serial innovator and author and speaker focusing on artificial intelligence, Angelo’s unique insights into the rise of disruptive technologies and how they are reshaping investment management—new sources of return and new tools to measure and manage risk, realignment of the relationships between asset owners and asset managers, different composition and demographics of the workforce, and transformation of traditional business models—have revealed the future of beneficial investing. Angelo is the “dissident” columnist for Institutional Investor, where he had the most read opinion columns in 2017, and a former columnist for Chief Investment Officer. His column The Doctor Is In won the American Business Media’s 2016 Jesse H. Neal Award for best commentary. He has also published extensively in other publications, including Pensions & Investments, Healthcare Financial Management, and the American Indian Culture and Research Journal (UCLA). He’s the author of Environmental Alpha: Institutional Investors and Climate Change (Wiley 2009), founder and publisher of the Journal of Environmental Investing, and a member of the Chicago Quantitative Alliance. He’s also the chairman of the board of outreach with Lacrosse and Schools, a sports-based nonprofit that creates educational opportunities for at-risk youths on Chicago’s South and West Sides. He has over 25 years of experience in the institutional investment industry and holds a PhD in contemporary European philosophy from DePaul University.
