Ethan Berman

Operating Partner

Ethan’s journey is rich in colour. His passion for playwriting saw him in Paris in the 1980s, with several of his plays hitting the stage. He moved back to New York to work for JP Morgan, before spinning out RiskMetrics as its CEO and founder and listing it on the NYSE in 2008.

Famously, while CEO, Ethan wrote a letter to the Board to ask that his remuneration be reduced, despite a record year, citing that he felt that he hadn’t performed personally up to the standard that he expected of himself. The business was eventually sold to MSCI for $US1.6b.

Ethan resides in NYC and we are proud (and very lucky) to call him a friend and now formally an advisor to both TDM and portfolio companies.

Aside from mentoring the leaders at TDM, Ethan spends most of his time growing his not-for-profit, I2 Learning.
