  • Interview with Charles Suh, CFA: Pacific Global Launches Active Strategy Focusing On Women Leaders

    September 1st, 2016  

    Pacific Global Investment Management Company has launched an active domestic large-cap core equity strategy that focuses on investing in companies with women in leadership.

    The strategy targets companies with women in C-Suite roles such as ceo, president, coo and cfo as well as companies with women making up at least one-third of its board of directors, according to Charles Suh, v.p. and portfolio manager. While most strategies in the marketplace are taking an index approach to this area, Pacific Global wanted to focus on how the information could be used in an active way to build off the premise that women in leadership companies outperform the broader market.

    For perspective, 10.7% of all S&P 500 companies have more than 33% of their board seats occupied by women, and just 22.7% have at least one female executive, as of June 30, according to FactSet. The strategy went live on July 1 and Suh acknowledges that the process will take some time as the efforts across the industry look to take hold.
