Ethic Inc. (“Ethic”), the tech-driven asset management platform that powers sustainable equities solutions for wealth advisors and institutional investors, today announced the addition of exchange-traded fund industry veteran Jennifer Grancio to its advisory board.
Ms. Grancio brings almost two decades of financial services industry experience, having held senior executive positions within BlackRock’s venerable iShares business for more than 18 years. A member of the founding team that introduced iShares ETFs to the market, she went on to lead its U.S. and European distribution efforts, and later acted as global head of marketing and partnerships for BlackRock’s index business. During her tenure, BlackRock significantly increased its sustainable investing footprint.
Grancio received her undergraduate degree from Stanford University and her Master of Business Administration from Columbia Business School.
“Jennifer has an incredible track record of understanding and responding to client demand, and she is a tremendous addition to our advisory board,” said Doug Scott, Ethic’s cofounder and CEO. “She brings a wealth of experience in building and scaling technology-driven financial solutions, and we’re delighted to welcome her into the Ethic family.”
Grancio will join a team of accomplished asset management and institutional investing luminaries that currently serve as trusted advisors to Ethic’s executive team, helping them to identify and capitalize on opportunities for growth, investment and product development. Earlier this year, the advisory board was bolstered by the addition of sustainable investing trailblazer Peter S. Knight, a founding partner of Generation Investment Management.
