Allocate a % of the portfolio to specific impact or to a manager with ESG expertise
The network has created a non-comprehensive list of sustainable investment products in each asset class that (1) incorporate ESG factors, (2) apply exclusions or (3) focus on a specific impact. Each asset class category below is linked to a spreadsheet that provides firm name, product name, strategy description, investment minimum, vehicle types, expense ratio and availability for several dozens of investment products as well as links to the firm website where you can learn more. The investment options are provided as a beginning point in the diligence process not the end. It is meant to introduce potential investment products to endowment professionals and their advisors to help better align the endowment with the institution's mission.
