Title and Organization:
Peter Kellner is Chairman & CEO of Richmond Global Compass, a discretionary values-driven global macro fund that integrates sustainability practices into meticulous traditional research. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by assessing investment and trading opportunities across global asset classes and allocating capital to strategies believed to offer the most attractive risk-adjusted returns. RGC focuses on identifying investment themes based on a top down assessment of macroeconomic events via fundamental, quantitative, industry, economic, community, asset class and securities analyses. We leverage proprietary technology with an emphasis on data science and artificial intelligence to support quantitative processes. That analysis then feeds into a bottoms-up assessment of intrinsic risks of companies and/or countries.
Mr. Kellner also founded Richmond Global Ventures, a venture capital fund investing in disruptive technologies globally and leveraging for investments in the 33 country network of Endeavor Global, an NGO he co-founded in 1996 to identify and cultivate the highest impacting entrepreneurs in the world. He spearheaded – building offices and identifying entrepreneurs – Endeavor’s launch initially in Latin America, the Middle East, and North America. After university, as a Fulbright Scholar to Hungary, he founded the Environmental Management & Law Association (EMLA), one of Central Europe’s most influential NGOs in environmental policy to this day and originally backed by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
Mr. Kellner has invested in and lived on five continents over 20 years, seeding some of the largest platform technology companies from Brazil to China. He is a Member of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO). He serves on the board of Endeavor Global, Endeavor Miami, and Endeavor Louisville; and is a Trustee of the Allen-Stevenson School in New York. He is a Member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Pacific Council for International Policy, and International Institute for Strategic Studies. He is also a Crown Fellow at The Aspen Institute and Young Global Leader at the World Economic Forum. He received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University, a J.D. from Yale Law School, and an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. He lectured in Princeton’s Engineering Department on entrepreneurship for 13 years and provided the funding to create the University’s E-Lab for student entrepreneurship.
