Basics of Impact Investing: A Conversation About Investment Policies and Evaluation Metrics For ESG Investors

September 26, 2022 Podcast
EO Radio Show - Your Nonprofit Legal Resource

Welcome to EO Radio Show – Your Nonprofit Legal Resource. In this episode, we address the fiduciary duty of a nonprofit board when setting its investment policies and how to think about impact investing in the context of a diversified investment portfolio.

I'm delighted that we can take this opportunity to bring you a conversation with Craig Ayers, Senior Vice President and Senior Portfolio Manager at Whittier Trust Company and Gabe Rissman, President and Co-Founder of YourStake.

Craig will tell us about the modern portfolio manager's approach to integrating impact investments in a prudent portfolio and Gabe will give some perspective on metrics and how to think about more than just economic returns when assessing the ESG portfolio.
