Spencer Glendon

Spencer Glendon, Ph.D., spent 18 years as a Macroanalyst, Partner, and Director of Investment Research at Wellington Management, an investment management firm with more than $1 trillion in client assets. During that time, he became convinced that climate change would have significant impacts on capital markets, yet the risks were underappreciated within the financial sector. Inspired by the wealth of empirical data behind climate science, and its potential application for informing investment decisions, Spencer has spent the last several years focusing on models in climate science and finance and understanding the gaps between the two disciplines and their practitioners.

Spencer earned his Ph.D. and A.M. in economics from Harvard University. In addition, he holds a B.S. in industrial engineering from Northwestern University and was a Fulbright scholar at the Universität zu Köln in Germany.
