Co-founder and Executive Director, Future-Fit Foundation

Martin Rich is a sustainability and impact investment specialist, with over 20 years’ experience in both mainstream and social investment.

Martin co-founded Future-Fit Foundation 6 years ago with a vision of helping create a society which is environmentally restorative, socially just and economically inclusive. The foundation’s free-to-use tools enable businesses to take practical steps towards – and ultimately beyond – the SDGs, and empower investors to understand the total impact of their portfolios and thus direct capital accordingly.

Before that he worked for 13 years in international investment banking on structured debt and derivative products for JP Morgan, HSBC and UBS.

Martin has a passion for sustainable development and poverty relief, focusing his pro bono efforts in both the UK and internationally with Access Foundation (Non-Exec Director and Chair of the Endowment Investment Committee), Social Investment Business (Assets & Liabilities Committee), Panahpur Foundation (Investment Committee) and Christian Aid (“In Their Lifetime” Campaign Directorate). He is also a former member of the Asset Allocation Working Group for the G7 Social Investment Task Force.
