Michael Lustig retired after a 25-year career on Wall Street, and now devotes the majority of his time and energies toward non-profit & impact-related enterprises.
Prior to retiring, Michael spent most of his career at BlackRock where he was a Senior Managing Director overseeing Structured Mortgage & Derivative Products trading, and was the portfolio manager overseeing the Federal Reserve's managed assets arising from their activities during the market crisis of 2008-9. He subsequently managed the Cash Collateral accounts for BlackRock’s Securities Lending business.
Michael serves on a number of non-profit Boards and is an impact investor on the Board of GigaWatt Global, a solar energy company that built the first large-scale grid-connected field in East Africa (with more in-process!), as well as maintaining several other corporate Advisory & Board positions. He has also curated a number of exhibits at The Society of Illustrators (the most recent one: https://www.societyillustrators.org/exhibits/tony-harris).
