Meet Julie Skye, Principal, Skye Advisors
With over three decades of experience in the financial services industry, Julie combines her experience with her passion for Values-Based Investing as she works with families, nonprofits, and endowments to identify their environmental, social, governance (ESG) values, and build portfolios around those factors. This process turns financial markets into change agents that tackle the issues that matter to each person, often with competitive returns and less volatility. Her knowledge of research-based best practices allows her to focus on strategic planning and investment policy design for families and organizations, and retirement plan participant education.
Previously, Julie was a Senior Wealth Advisor for Mariner Wealth Advisors, a Portfolio manager for Pinnacle Investment Advisors, and an Investment Officer for Heritage Trust. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in finance and a Master’s Degree in organizational change from the University of Tulsa.
Julie is a member of the Unitarian Universalists Association’s Committee on Socially Responsible Investment, Sustainable Tulsa, the Tulsa chapter of the Sierra Club, the City of Tulsa Human Rights Committee subcommittee “Compassionate Tulsa,” and the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce’s Diversity and Inclusion Initiative, “Mosaic.” She is also on the Advisory Board of Smart Growth Tulsa, on the Board of Tulsa Interfaith Alliance, and co-chair of the All Souls Green Team. Julie has been appointed to Tulsa’s Community Policing Commission by Mayor GT Bynum, and to Tulsa’s Citizen’s Jail Oversight and Review Committee by Sheriff Vic Regalado. She has been involved with the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Committee since 2001.
