Impact Investing at CA
Advocates of impactful investing for nearly 40 years

We customize portfolios to your values
Our ability to customize portfolios to specific impact and objectives is core to our process. Our clients own their portfolios, and therefore, own their impact.
We are committed to building a deep partnership with you to understand your goals and values. This approach, combined with our experienced team, global research capabilities, leadership, and industry influence allow us to build you a portfolio that precisely targets the impact themes most aligned with your priorities.
Our Net Zero Commitment
Net Zero Progress Report
Since our first report on the topic in 2016, we have shared with our clients a number of research reports helping them understand the importance of the topic and how they might respond in their investment planning and implementation.
In 2021, we chose to become a signatory of the Net Zero Investment Consultants Initiative (NZICI). This progress report details the steps we have taken to integrate net zero across our firm and where we still need to make progress.
