About Verdant Investments

Our Story

/ˈvərdnt/ adj. – from Old French verdeant, “to be green”

Verdant Investments focuses exclusively on socially responsible and impact (SRI) investing.

We begin with a conversation. You tell us your goals – financial and personal/institutional – and we design a socially-responsible investment strategy that helps get you there.

Verdant combines traditional investing strategies with SRI investing philosophies. By incorporating these material, non-financial factors, we strive to construct high-quality portfolios that create a measurable and positive impact on some of the world’s biggest issues. At Verdant, we set our standards high – for ourselves, for our selected managers, and for our portfolios. We research rigorously and review meticulously, striving to ensure that your portfolio performs the way it should.

Our portfolios are custom-built for each of our unique clients to focus attention on the issues that they feel matter the most. Whether you're guided by investing for the environment, animal welfare, women's empowerment, workplace equality, morals, or other concerns, we have an investing solution that fits.
