Creating a sustainable world from the ground up
Direct impact investments place capital in the hands of organizations working to advance social, economic and environmental justice. The impact of these investments is measured in many ways—in the jobs created or saved, the children cared for, the units of affordable housing built, the acres of farmland preserved, and the communities and industries revitalized.
Because it matters
In today’s complex world, too many critical social and environmental needs go unmet, often for lack of funding. Investing in local economies and community lending institutions and initiatives helps address this problem at the grassroots level. Our clients enjoy the opportunity to participate in creating a sustainable world, while pursuing their financial goals.
