Investments That Make a Real Impact
Across all asset classes in every account under our management, we integrate our client’s intentions by adhering to their core values, investing responsibly, and seeking out ways to make financial returns along with real impact.
FULLY ENGAGED CAPITAL
Every dollar that you invest can be a voice for the change you want to see in the world.
At Impact Investors, we actively research opportunities and engage as shareholders and members of the socially responsible investment community to influence company and public policies that we believe improve both the financial well-being and the overall impact of our investments.
The following themes generally represent campaigns we support:
- Climate Change
- Waste & Pollution
- Labor Force & Economic Justice
- Consumer Health & Safety
- Gender & Diversity
- Education & Ethical Media
We also post our recently signed resolution and advocacy letters to offer a more concrete sense of the engagements we’re involved with.

High Impact Direct Investments
For qualified clients, we mobilize private capital to address some of the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges, while seeking financial returns for our investors using high impact, direct investment offerings.
We believe that risks are reduced, and opportunities increase when financial returns are adjusted to account for environmental and social impacts. Companies are more resilient when they understand their impact on all stakeholders instead of pursuing only a short-term, extractive financial return to shareholders.
