Brown Brothers Harriman veteran joins Align Impact as Associate Director


Align Impact, a financial advisory firm focused exclusively on impact investing, has appointed Emily Hard as Associate Director effective January 2020. Hard brings over 10 years of experience as a wealth advisor to high-net-worth families, foundations, and private companies. Hard is based in Align Impact’s Los Angeles office.

Hard joins Align Impact after serving as an Independent Adviser, providing financial and strategic planning to creative companies that focus on sustainability as a guiding principle in their business models. Prior to that, Hard spent 10 years with Brown Brothers Harriman’s private banking practice, where she most recently served as a Relationship Manager.

“Emily brings an institutional wealth management background and a sterling reputation for managing sophisticated client relationships for high-net-worth families, family offices and foundations,” says Jennifer Kenning, CEO and Co-Founder of Align Impact. “In addition, Emily’s advisory expertise spans the range of wealth management services that our clients turn to Align Impact for, including investments, philanthropy, legacy planning and how to transition an existing portfolio to align with their values. We are very excited to have her join our firm.”

“I am thrilled to join the team at Align Impact,” says Hard. “Align is unique in their approach to curating investment portfolios across all asset classes and impact themes according to each client’s specific priorities and interests. What’s more, as an independent fiduciary, they bring a rigor to their investment analysis that, when combined with their extensive knowledge of impact investing and ability to execute complex wealth planning strategies, sets Align Impact apart in the industry.”

Hard earned her BA in Political Science at Temple University. Her volunteer experience includes empowering low-income women and their families to achieve economic independence through financial literacy programs at Economic Mobility Pathways and the Boston Tax Help Coalition.
