November 17, 2017

By Bloomberg

Investment strategies that focus on improving the lives of women and girls, closing the gender pay gap, or adding women to corporate boards have attracted more than $2 billion in public and private assets. Public investment vehicles, including mutual funds and exchange-traded fudns focused on so-called “gender-lens” investing, oversaw $910 million in assets as of June 30, 2017, according to a study released Wednesday by investment firm Veris Wealth Partners LLC. That’s up from $561 million in the same period a year ago, and just $100 million in 2014. Read the original story from Bloomberg
