Sustainable and Impact Investing

Environmental, social, and corporate governance considerations are integral to investing, for both risk management and long-term return potential. To that end, we integrate ESG and sustainability factors across our investment platform by assessing all material information to help our clients make prudent investment decisions.

Our sustainable and impact investing team, and our firm more broadly, take an integrated, customized approach to building portfolios that reflect our clients’ specific impact and mission objectives, without making concessions on returns. We employ a broad range of impact investing strategies, seeking to finance long-term, market-driven solutions to real societal challenges. We aim to invest in the future, eliminate greenwashing, lean into underappreciated or mispriced areas of the market, stay ahead of change, and align portfolios with fundamental long-term economic value.

We are a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and the Task Force for Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

We also partner closely with leading industry networks and impact-related affinity groups to help advance the volume of investment opportunities, create connections in the industry, and expand access to quality research and thought leadership.

 

Climate change and social inequality are two material and systemic risks facing the global economy and investment portfolios over the coming decades. In this paper, we demonstrate the relationship between climate change and social justice, highlight how investors can implement an intersectional approach to climate justice in their portfolios, and outline three steps investors should consider to help ensure our transition to a low-carbon economy is inclusive and just.
