Los Angeles Business Journal’s CFO Awards Finalist: Laura Baron, CFO of SDS Capital Group

As the CFO of SDS Capital Group, Laura Baron has not only achieved tremendous success personally, but she has enabled the company to become one of the preeminent impact fund managers in the country (SDS is a national leader in impact investing with over $1 billion in assets under management), and she has done this despite the early challenges of growing up in deep poverty and overcoming the challenges confronted by immigrant families.


Baron joined SDS Group in 2009 as Vice President and Controller and now serves as CFO. When Baron joined SDS in 2009, Baron, within 24 months, built out a fully operational SDS Advantage Platform and the organization obtained its first third-party client. Over time, she brought in over $850 million of third-party investments that SDS managed or currently managed on this platform.
