The ETF that Zhang manages and subadvises for, ECOZ, won the best new ESG ETF for 2020. We talk about how ECOZ’s carbon footprint is 85% lower than the S&P 500 Index. Zhang looks for companies that are focused on economic policy, corporate demand for clean energy, and significantly lower technology costs. These factors drive what Zhang calls the new industrial revolution, with the goal of a net zero carbon economy. We also discuss Zhang’s work as a co-founder of Women in ETFs, an organization with 7,000 members worldwide, that helps women advance from analyst positions to portfolio managers.
