Screening Matters

We invest in companies that show leadership and dedication to progressive business practices.

The strategy begins by using a screening process. This means that the portfolio is inclusive of best-in-class companies while excluding the worst corporate offenders. This is based on a number of metrics including: 

  • Environmental track record & sustainability

  • Corporate governance, business ethics  & transparency

  • Product safety

  • Fair & safe workplace

  • International human rights

  • Community involvement

Change On A Local Scale

We work with our clients to direct a percentage of their capital into smaller, community-based investments, both domestically and abroad. These investments provide opportunities to entrepreneurs and community services including healthcare, housing, education and childcare.

Investing in local economies creates positive social change.  Investing in the community is investing in the future.  The old adage "Change begins at Home" is true in our hearts.  We are passionate about the environment, social good and local strength.  Contact us to learn more.
