John Streur is President and Chief Executive Officer of Calvert Research and Management. The company traces its roots to Calvert Investments, which was founded in 1976 and was the first to launch a socially responsible mutual fund that avoided investment in companies that did business in apartheid-era South Africa. Today, the Calvert Funds are one of the largest and most diversified families of responsibly invested mutual funds, encompassing actively and passively managed strategies, U.S. and international equity strategies, fixed-income strategies, and asset allocation funds — all managed in accordance with the Calvert Principles for Responsible Investment. Calvert Research and Management is a wholly owned subsidiary of Eaton Vance.
Mr. Streur began to focus his energy exclusively on responsible and sustainable investing in 2012, as President, Director and Principal of Portfolio 21, a boutique investment management firm specializing in global environmental investing. Previously, John spent 20 years at Managers Investment Group LLC (and its predecessor), a firm he co-founded and where he served as President, CEO and Chair of the Investment Committee. John was also President and Trustee of the firm’s fund family, Managers Funds and Managers AMG Funds. Managers Investment Group LLC grew to over $30 billion in assets under management and offered investment strategies across global equity, debt and derivative markets. John has managed socially responsible investments at the request of institutional clients, including public funds, religious institutions, and college and university endowments since 1991.
Mr. Streur is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin (Bachelor of Science, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences), where he also competed nationally and internationally as a member of the University's Rowing Team and as a member of the United States National Rowing Team. He and his wife Mary have four adult children.
