School trustees voted to sell fossil fuel companies in fund

Plan puts into question relationship with manager Investure

.

Barnard Colleges board of trustees voted to divest from energy companies that deny climate change, putting into question the $286 million endowments relationship with its money manager Investure.

.

The board approved the measure Saturday, saying the college will distinguish between companies based on their behavior and willingness to transition to a cleaner economy. In 2014, Investure lost a client, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, which decided to divest from fossil fuel companies.

.

Investure, founded in 2003 by former University of Virginia endowment head Alice Handy, manages money by pooling its clients assets rather than tailoring portfolios. Handy didnt respond to an email or phone call seeking comment.

.

Weve got to make a decision in due course about the way forward, Robert Goldberg, the schools chief operating officer, said about Barnards relationship with Investure, which dates back a decade. Its worked for her and its worked for us but as times have changed we have to evaluate where we are in the world and what are our priorities.

.

Selecting Companies

.

The womens college, which is affiliated with Columbia University in New York, is deciding which companies to blacklist and discussing how to implement the change with Investure, Goldberg said prior to the vote.

.

Barnard has about $18 million of investments in fossil fuel companies, largely private equity partnerships entered into through Investure, Goldberg said. Divestment will take time because the only way to unwind the partnerships is to sell and we dont want to sell at a discount.

Students Protest

.

A student group, Divest Smith, demonstrated on campus March 2 to push the board to remove fossil fuel investments from its $1.7 billion endowment. Smith last year formed a group of students, faculty and staff to review the issue. Smiths board isnt voting on the divestment issue at its meeting this weekend, but will receive the study groups report and meet with students, a spokeswoman said on March 3.
