How to Go All-in: Investing Full Portfolios toward Environmental and Social Benefits

While there is a lot of talk about fossil-free investment portfolios and university endowments, few are actually walking the walk so far. Earlier this year the trustees of Becker College mandated that all investments in the school’s endowment should generate a positive impact on society and the environment. Given Becker’s reputation of socially progressive leadership, that is hardly surprising and comes as a natural next step following the launch of an impressive new social-business center affiliated with Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus. However, in the broader world of portfolio and endowment management, this is a bold step few have had either the courage or the tools to take. In this talk, Becker College President Robert Johnson will explain what made this big move possible and share tips on speeding up others’ journeys toward all-in sustainable investing.
