Initiative: Envestnet's Impact Investing Platform
Socially responsible investing (SRI) in the United States has grown by a factor of 10 since 1995, and as of 2014 totaled more than $6 trillion in assets. Envestnet created the Impact Investing platform to provide SRI solutions through portfolios that are comprehensive, diversified and designed for investors with environmental, social, and governance priorities and preferences.
The platform consists of seven risk-based portfolios constructed by impact managers who consistently beat their benchmarks on a risk-adjusted basis, while fulfilling environmental, social, and governance objectives. The portfolios spread risk over multiple, diverse types and classes of managers, including mutual funds, ETFs, index-based mutual funds, and separate account solutions.
