Emerson Brown

I am currently in training to become a Senior Consultant at FactSet Research Systems and plan on using my knowledge in ESG and sustainability to deliver the best possible outcomes for my clients.


I am currently working at FactSet Research Systems as a Client Solutions Associate. I also manage a clothing brand, Kimba Threads, that redistributes funds from consumer purchases to wildlife conservation organisations in Australia.

I graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Applied Finance with a Bachelor of Economics and plan on using my expertise in these areas to drive the financial industry towards a more sustainable system. My passion for sustainability and environmental awareness stems from my university studies where I was awarded the Department of Economics Prize for Academic Excellence in Environmental Economics. From there, I then pursued a Certificate in ESG Investing and became a volunteer at Altiorem to expand my knowledge in the field of sustainability.

In the future I hope to develop my skills in a range of financial and sustainability areas to help people and businesses transition to a world where societal and environmental issues become a distant memory.
