USA, 2018

Originally a lawyer by training, Michael Cappucci is currently Senior Vice President at Harvard Management Company, the manager of the world’s largest university endowment. When not grappling with the meaning of environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration in sustainable investing, he can be found overseeing HMC’s compliance program, reviewing and negotiating documents for Harvard’s investments, and coordinating the firm’s regulatory reform responses. He has presented widely on sustainable investing in private equity and hedge funds, including at events sponsored by the United Nations-sponsored Principles for Responsible Investment. He has written on the topics of sustainable investing, regulatory reform, and team work, and his article on ESG integration has been featured by Responsible Investor and the Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance. Prior to joining Harvard Management, Michael worked in the legal department of Fidelity Investments and for the international law firm Ropes & Gray LLP. He attended Tufts University, where he graduated with highest honors in philosophy, and the University of Virginia School of Law. He is an inveterate optimist (read: Boston Red Sox fan), amateur oenophile, occasional golfer, beginner antique map collector, and peewee soccer dad.
