How Municipal Bonds Influence Justice & Equality

Our firm has intentionally expanded its focus on sustainable investing over the past decade—in part because we believe it helps us make better investment decisions, and in part because we believe it helps our clients make a positive impact on the world with their capital. Matters of racial and environmental justice are important to us and to our clients, and we have always considered these factors as part of our ESG research and our process for evaluating investments.

The Materiality of The "S" In ESG

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) research among institutional investors has historically focused mostly on the “E” and the “G,” leaving social issues as somewhat of a forgotten middle child. Investors have concentrated on quantifiable environmental targets such as carbon emissions, and on best governance practices for compensation and board composition; meanwhile, social investment risks—especially risks related to racism and racial injustice—have often taken a back seat.
