My good friend Pete Krull has won more major national and international investment investment honors.
Pete, who lives in Asheville, but has clients in the Roanoke/Blcksburg area (where he and his wife, Melissa, used to live), owns Earth Equity (officially, founder, CEO and Director of Investments), was just named one of the 100 Most Influential Financial Advisors in the country by the investment source Investopedia, which has 30 million users.
Those selected “stand out for their contributions to critical conversations about financial literacy, investing strategies, life-stage planning and wealth management,” according to David Siegel, CEO of Investopedia.
Also Earth Equity has been named a Best for the World B Corporation for the third straight year. That honor goes to the top 10 percent of Certified B Corporations in the world.
Says Pete, “I’m especially happy that our award is specifically focused on customers. Our loyal clients intentionally choose to work with Earth Equity Advisors to help them align their investments with their values. This opportunity that we have to empower our clients to magnify their impact through responsible investing is so very important to the world today.
“It’s responsible investors who are leading the movement to make corporations more accountable, push for climate change solutions, divesting from fossil fuels and weapons manufacturers, and making the workplace safer for employees.”
