Seeds, a financial technology firm that empowers financial advisors to offer clients a more intentional and personalized investing experience, announces the launch of its strategic advisory board. The diverse group of trusted advisors includes C-suite executives, visionary entrepreneurs, technologists, and change makers who will partner with Seeds’ leadership team on its strategic growth plans.
Seeds provides financial advisors with an opportunity to design dynamic values-aligned investment portfolios to meet their clients’ environmental, social, and governance (ESG)-based objectives. The firm was founded by financial advisors seeking solutions for their clients. Seeds, which has experienced substantial growth since its founding, sought to assemble its advisory board with members of varied experience to deepen and complement its wealth management expertise and who share Seeds’ vision to create broad impact through values-aligned investing. Actor, activist, and entrepreneur Adrian Grenier, best known for his leading role in the television series “Entourage,” joined the board to support Seeds’ mission to shift trillions of dollars in retail assets to more sustainable and socially conscious investments.
“Creating wealth shouldn’t be at the expense of what we believe in as global citizens, and these days it really doesn’t have to,” said Grenier. “Over the years, I’ve had to work too hard at customizing my portfolio to better align with my values, but now with tools that Seeds offers, it’s easier than ever. I can actively support companies that seek profit while protecting our community and our planet. I feel at home among Seeds’ strategic advisors and excited to support them in their mission.”
“As financial advisors, we built Seeds to address a very specific need for ourselves and our peers,” said Zach Conway, founder and CEO of Seeds. “Our Advisory Board’s multidisciplinary insight and depth of expertise will elevate our thinking around what we’re building. We’re thrilled to have such a diverse group of leading minds to challenge and push us to build the best platform for our direct clients and the most rewarding investment experience for the end investor.”
