Dave Chen is CEO at Equilibrium, a sustainability driven, real asset investor in the agriculture and food, and carbon transition infrastructure. He is responsible for strategy, executive leadership, and developing the firm’s investment products and asset strategies. Dave is a preeminent thought leader in sustainable real asset investing, particularly in the realm of agriculture and food investments that achieve measurable impact investment results while realizing financial returns attractive to institutional investors.

Prior to joining Equilibrium, Dave was General Partner at OVP Venture Partners, CEO/Co-Founder of GeoTrust (acquired by VeriSign in 2006); Founder of The Ascent Group; and served on the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank Board.

Dave is an Adjunct Professor of Finance at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and taught sustainable finance and impact investing at Stanford Graduate School of Business from 2011 to 2013.

In today’s episode, Dave gives an overview of Equilibrium, provides insight into the genesis of Equilibrium’s founding, discusses how value chain analysis is in their DNA and how he philosophically considers sustainability and sustainable investing as a competitive advantage. He speaks about how Equilibrium was focused on institutional investors from the beginning and how today they make up 90% of their clients. Dave describes Equilibrium’s four main funds, including their Controlled Environment Foods Fund, and he speaks about what he calls ‘Distributed Abundance’ where hi-tech, controlled environment agriculture disconnects climate from geography enabling the ultimate ‘Do-It-Yourself’ and ‘Bring-Your-Own’ climate anywhere on earth.

We delve deeper into this concept of ‘Distributed Abundance’ and the countries at the center of controlled environment technology, the potential for this technology to develop and move into other food categories in the future, and how we will see a complete ‘rethinking of agriculture’ in the years to come.

I really enjoyed this insightful discussion with Dave, and I hope you will too!
