It’s fairly well-established now that many in the so-called 1% have behaved rather badly of late. Not so for this particular financier who has proved the exception to the rule (or ruling class). Carter Bales is the co-founder and Managing Partner of New World Capital Group, a private equity firm investing in the environmental sector. The investment team is a “who’s who” list of New Yorkers such as firm principal Silda Wall Spitzer and board advisor Peter Goldmark, and their mission is simple: apply disciplined investment strategy to sound companies doing good things for the environment. It’s comforting to know there are well-heeled financiers investing in all of our futures and not just their own.
