Eva J. Sudol, senior lecturer, Finance

What did you do before coming to HBS?
I spent 28 years at the Capital Group, a global investment management company, in a variety of roles: working as an investment analyst in New York and London, an equities research director and an international equities portfolio manager in Geneva, and most recently as a head portfolio strategy manager back in New York. Before Capital, I spent a summer as an investment banking intern at Goldman Sachs and three years at Poland’s Ministry of Finance as a project manager. I have a BA from Brown in addition to the MBA from Harvard Business School.

How have you exercised business in leadership?
I built and led a team of portfolio strategy managers in a new division of Capital focused on developing systematic products such as exchange traded funds (ETFs) and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) oriented funds. Prior to that, as an equity research director, I hired and developed young investment analysts.

What will you be teaching?
I will be teaching Finance 1 in the Required Curriculum.

What would you be doing if you weren’t a professor?
I would continue investing and in my free time, sailing, traveling, and spending time with my family.

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Poland.

What is something you like to do outside of your academic work?
I really enjoy sailing, both day-racing and long distance ocean cruising, and skiing in the winter.

What’s your favorite book, movie, or piece of art?
It’s difficult to find one favorite but an excellent book I read recently is The Fed Unbound: Central Banking in a Time of Crisis by Lev Menand. I also don’t have a specific piece of art in mind, but I love the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
