Anant Sundaram is Visiting Professor of Business Administration at the Tuck School. His areas of expertise are business valuation, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, and financial strategies for profitable growth. Recently, his interests have broadened to examining the financial impact of climate change on companies. He created the Fossil Fuel Beta (FFß), a metric to measure the stock price impact of a company’s exposure to fossil fuel price changes and CO2 emissions risks. CFO magazine now uses this metric to score companies on their FFß and its consequent earnings per share impact.
Professor Sundaram works with senior managers of companies on how their financial fundamentals and performance metrics drive market values and P/E ratios, and has led director forums on corporate governance. He has published widely in law, finance, and management journals, as well as in the popular press, including The New York Times, Financial Times, and Forbes.
