Investing with Impact

"To galvanize the necessary capital to have real impact, sustainable investing can’t be limited to investors willing to accept unattractive returns in order to create social good. Getting to scale requires investment products that seek attractive returns while benefiting society. This is the philosophy behind our Investing with Impact Platform."


—James Gorman, Chairman and CEO
