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
