BlueSky Investment Management has appointed Grant Cleghorn (pictured), as Partner and Head of Global Marketing. In his new role, Cleghorn will oversee BlueSky sales and marketing including US and International institutional asset owners, family offices and other intermediaries including bank and advisory platforms.
Prior to joining BlueSky, Cleghorn was a Partner and Head of Institutional Marketing at Parnassus Investments, where he played a critical role in growing the firm’s AUM from USD1 billion to over USD15 billion over a six-year period.
“I am compelled by BlueSky’s methodology that ties the financial impacts of ESG factors into a disciplined fundamental value approach. They are integrating the ESG factors unique to each industry which can have financial impact to the company’s bottom line and can ultimately affect stock performance. The team is simply using better information to drive better investment decisions,” says Cleghorn.
“We have known Grant for nearly a decade and could not be more excited to have someone of Grant’s character and pedigree to lead our growth strategy,” says Bud Sturmak, Founder of BlueSky. Ron Dornau, Portfolio Manager, added “We have admired Parnassus for many years and look to Grant to implement a similar marketing strategy here that will benefit all stake holders.”
